Before Christmas I spent many hours at my sewing machine making gifts. That trend has continued into the new year as I have made a few things for myself and my husband. Below are some of the projects I created.
I made plush wearable blankets for Addie and Jackson for Christmas. They are fully lined so they are reversable.
I purposely made them big so hopefully they can wear them for another year.
I made hoodies for my daughters again this year. I was delighted, on Christmas, that Addie was wearing the dress I made her for her birthday especially since the shirt I made for her mom was done in matching fabrics.
This wasn’t a sewing project but I made this t-shirt for my husband and put it under the tree from Ruby and Ranger. (In case you can’t see the words it says: I’m a grown man. I do what
I want my dogs want.) LOL!
My first after-the-holidays project was this hoodie I made for myself. I wanted to do a trial run of the pattern, so I used pieces of fabric I had left over from other projects. Somehow I was able to find four different yellow fabrics that gave me enough to make the shirt. I do love how it turned out (especially the yellow colors) and will for sure use this pattern again. You can get a better idea of how the whole shirt looks from the picture below.
My sister sent me some fabric for Christmas. She decided to let me make my own gift.
I turned it into this striped turtleneck. I absolutely love – it especially the fabric ❣
I was planning to make a hoodie like the one above for my husband, but I needed to make a trip to the fabric store to pick up some complementary fabric before I could start the project. In the meantime, I made myself a second turtleneck with some fabric I had on hand.
I used the same pattern but added about four inches in length to make it tunic style.
Last weekend my sister and I made the trip to the fabric store, so on Monday I Made my husband’s hoodie.
I love the way it turned out and it looks very nice on him. More importantly he loves it.
He slips it on whenever he feels chilly in the house, and we don’t have to bump up the thermostat. I call it his ‘gas bill buster’ LOL!
As I finish this post my mind is on my next project – dog blankets. I show them to you when they are finished.
Thanks for visiting. Do you have any winter projects going?
