Crafting Galore!

I was VERY proliferous in the month of December in the crafty department.  I made many Christmas presents (and I'm still not quite finished with that holiday even though it is over).

In addition to the crazy amount of food I made, I also made non-food gifts.

For my moms' ministry girls, I made potpourri bags.  I made sunflower dishcloths for several family members.  I made doilies for some.  I made a yarn sweater for a 1 year old in one week.  I also am working on a purse and a sweater for myself.  I also got my mending done (hemming 7 pairs of pants and sewing up 2 stuffed animals), plus I sewed 2 new bag holders for my closet.  One for Wal-mart bags and one for bread sacks.

I will put some pictures in this post and some later.  (Somehow I forgot to take a picture of the 12mo. sweater before I gave it to her.  I will get one, but for now all I have is a picture of me working on it.)



For the potpourri bags, I used potpourri I found at a garage sale for .25/bag.  The ribbon was from the stash from my mom, remember that?  And I bought thin gold netting for less than $1.








And this is what the dishcloths look like:










Don't worry; more to come!
