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!
