Christmas Sewing

November 15, 2008 at 3:22 pm 1 comment

Yes, it seems to be that, as I looked at my calendar, Christmas will be here before I know it.  Alot faster than I’d like considering I have a “Christmas Sewing Gift List” already in progress.  For my sister-in-law, I purchased City Tote and Project Tote from keykalou’s Etsy Shop.  (She’s having a sale right now, any 2 patterns for $10.00!)  and am deciding which bag to make her.  Their both way to cute!

As for the girls, I have my little pillow embroidery project already underway.  But, I found two awesome books from the library that is really making me cross my fingers that I’ll get them completed in time.  I took the girls to the library the other night and while I’ll admit that the one down here isn’t nearly as nice (well stocked) as the main library up in Canton, they still have interesting books.

Cloth Dolls and Rag Dolls

 In my opinion, I believe that every little girl should have a handmade doll by their Mother.  Not sure why, but that’s what I decided.  So with that, I found a few doll patterns from the Rag Dolls book that I would love to give a try.

These pocket dolls are way to cute and can be personalized in a bunch of different ways.  L. loves bunnies and already has 2 bunnies that she sleeps with but had informed me that her bunny friends (Rosie and Cotton) need a new friend and not a snake (she also has a stuffed snake named Stripey) because the snake likes to steal the bunnies carrots.  When I saw the variation for the pocket doll, I knew that this is what I would make for L.

My favorite doll from the Rag Dolls book is the Upside Down doll.  It’s one piece, with no legs, and a nice beautiful long dress.  When it’s time for her to go to sleep, you just flip up her dress to reveal the sleepy doll.  Pefect for K.  I personally love the sweet embroidered face on the doll.

Now just cross your fingers that I’ll get all my Christmas sewing done on time, and won’t run into any problems with the dolls.
