My latest sewing projects for my Etsy Shop and my Christmas Decor

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Hi Ya'll! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your fall. We enjoyed our half a day of it here in Northeast Florida! Literally. But that didn't stop us from going  fall farm festival and enjoying the festivities.
I shared with you previously my stocking for Connor, who's due next week and my ornament for his big brother Josh and another for their parents. I made Connors 1st Christmas ornament and I love it. It's a Scandinavian Santa Clause.
I made some more of the bow tie bags for my Etsy shop. I just adore these. They are so roomy, have two padded pockets on the inside, and the bow just adds a special touch. These are available right now!
I am also making a few of these xl size fabric storage baskets for my shop as well. Great for your crochet or knitting supplies, in a childs room for toys, or in your craft room. Mine is going to store lots and lots of scraps until my next quilt.

And now for my humble home with it's mostly handmade Christmas decor. Here's our tree. Mostly handmade ornaments. All the cross stitched ones were made by me, as well as the pinecomb angels, little Santas, the Christmas caroler and a few more. Several were made by Mom or grandma, and many by friends or my kids. Oh I especially love the ones the kids have done.

I also made the sunglasses into snowmen, and my stepdaughter and I did her footprint and she turned it into Oloff.It turned out so cute but boy is it heavy! Of course grandson Josh's handprint his mommy did and made a Santa is a treasure.
The rest of our decor is mostly handmade too. I quilted and cross stitched the largeJesus decoration in 1990. It truly sums up what Christmas is about. I've shared my red door with you before that I decorate for the seasons since we don't have a mantle. My oldest Jim made the Christmas bear in 1st grade. I found the kit for the wood JOY at Goodwill for 2.99 and modge podged scrapbook paper onto 2 of them and painted the other. I did the littlefelt snowman in a frame years ago and just whipped up the bunting yesterday. Bunting is so festive and you can do it in fabrics for each season, to decorate a childs room or for a party.And it's quick to make!

I hope you're inspired to make something for you or someone else. An ornament or a decoration you'll pull out each year that will say "It's Christmas!" 
Blessings, Gina
