Christmas Handmades

Posted by on Jan 4, 2011 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I’m going to be very brief tonight, but I wanted to share the few things I photographed before Christmas. I also made the boys superhero capes, but I havent taken any pictures yet…

There were more pillow cases made this year, but they were mostly used to wrap gifts.

The boys and their cousin received their own shopping bags each containing a burrito or taco kit made from wool felt. I cut the tortillas out of wool felt, then needle felted the grill spots on them with brown wool roving. I used a dinner plate to trace the big burrito tortillas and a salad plate for the taco ones. The fillings were all cut from fulled wool sweaters. These were super easy and have been a big hit!

I also whipped out a small tagged teether for our little one in case he (or she…) had arrived in time. This, however, never did make it downstairs. Of course, neither did the stocking I filled…

I’ll pass along other projects and photos as I can, but our Christmas this year was really very simple! And I really liked that about it!
