Christmas gifts 

I was pretty busy sewing Christmas gifts these past few months. Now I can finally share what I made!

My older boy got a new flannel button up. The pattern is the Sketchbook shirt by Oliver + S in size 4 sewn out of Kaufman mammoth flannel in color plaid gold. It’s so thick and warm it’s practically a jacket! Perfect for the single digit temperatures we get this time of year.

For my husband’s and my parents I made a set of four mitered-corner watercolor linen dishtowels. Both the free tutorial and the fabric are available at Purl Soho. I’ll be making more of these soon, but for myself!

For my younger boy, I finally finished his embroidered baby blanket! It took ages. Seriously. He’s not exactly a baby anymore but at least it’s done now!

The front is linen which is embroidered with an adorable little fox and owl scene. Part of the embroidery is a pattern purchased from MyBearPaw but I did expand upon it a little. For the backing I used a sumptuous thick organic bamboo velour. So cozy!

Last but not least, my daughter requested this fancy dress up dress as her Christmas gift. I was happy to comply!

It’s a colonial era gown sewn from Simplicity 3725. I used shimmer fuchsia taffeta, gold satin, and gold floral lace plus a few beautiful handmade buttons off of Etsy. She’s thrilled with it! I’m pretty pleased with it myself 😉

Merry Christmas!

  1. Oh my goodness!!! It’s all lovely, but that colonial dress takes the cake! That is gorgeous! Of course she’s thrilled! I would have KILLED for something like that as a little girl. In fact, I will be honest – I still kind of want to flounce around in something like this. The colors and the lace are just stunning. Love the little mop cap too!

    • Thanks Inder! I was all about the dress up too as a kid (and now lol)! My grandmother would on occasion sew me fabulous dress-up things which I would just positively live in.
