Made it Monday....Christmas presents

Before Christmas I mentioned that I had been making Christmas presents but so as to not ruin the surprise I had not posted pictures. Well, the gifts are given and here are a few...

JJ loves her Snuggy so I made one for a friend's baby boy.

For his two sister I made some matching dresses. This first one is an interesting pattern. You cut out the dress then sew bias binding around the all the edges and dress is basically done. You then add a tie at the back and a tab with two buttons at the front (that join the two back pieces under the front piece - if that makes sense!?!).

This is the alien outfit I made last year but I found a picture of the hat I made so I thought I would add it in!

I have a few sewing blogs I follow but does anyone have any ones they would recommend? What am I missing?!


  1. Oh pretty! What lovely gifts, I love a home-made pressie, they're extra special!

  2. Can I just say how envious I am that you can make things? And because of my sewing envy, I'm following you... xx

  3. I like Sew Mama Sew.
    Which you have probably seen already ...
