The big reveal!! All I made for Christmas!!

So I'll start with the doll clothes that I made for Lacey.  She got an American Girl doll the day before Thanksgiving that she paid for all by herself.  So she wanted doll everything for Christmas!
Here is a fancy dress with shrug

and doesn't every doll need a zebra skin coat?

and pj pants that match the ones she got for Christmas.

I was called by a family friend about making some doll beds like the ones we did for the girls last year. I was instructed white beds, and green fabric for one and purple for the other.

Here is the green one, I LOVE the green that I found.

Complete with pillows and fitted sheet of course!

And here is the best purple I could find.  There is just not a lot of purple that is cute fabric out there but this I thought would do the trick.

After those were complete it was time to get started on the wood portion of my crafting. This project was made for my mother.  I have this thing about making grandmother gifts for her.  SO this is what she got this year. 

Needless to say I made her cry, again!!

I made a sign similar to this one, I didn't get a photo of the finished product but this gives you the idea.  This was the perfect gift for my brother and his girlfriend because he is TERRIBLE with birthdays so now he has no excuse!

This is similar to what I made for my dad for Christmas.  I didn't get a picture of his either but it's just like this only different lettering.

And last but not least I made these PJ pants for the girls this year.  They had to get a picture with their cups because they were SO excited Santa brought them all one.   So other that the bags I made for the nieces and nephews which I forgot to take pictures of too but as soon as I get them I'll make sure to post them! 

What did you make for someone this Christmas?

I've been crafting, really I have.

I have been REALLY busy with a lot of crafting but most of it is Christmas gifts so I'm not posting them just yet but here are a few things that aren't Christmas gifts that I can post.

Here is a toddler boy owl hat that I made, unfortunately I don't have a little model to wear it but it's definitely going to a good home.

This is a ladybug hat I designed at the request of my 7 year old.  I made it for her friend that was having her birthday.  I couldn't find a pattern for it so I made one up myself.

This is a project that I completed for my cousin.  She is giving this diaper bag to one of her friends.  Hope a couple months isn't too late!
It is large and has great dividers and pockets on the inside.  I would have LOVED this when I carried around a diaper bag but we are WAY past that.  I'm good just making them for people! There are a few things I would change from the original pattern now that I have made one but it's still good!  Well until I can post all my Christmas gifts.  I hope you get all your projects done before Christmas!

A few new things...

So I've seen these owl hats every where so I just had to try my hands out at one of these.  I found a free pattern on Pintrest.

This is the result of the 1st try.  I love it and think it's SO cute but I'm just not loving the ears on it.  So I did a little research on Etsy

And I found one with ears like this one, so this is my second attempt and I have to say I like it much better.  The first one went to my friend who should have her baby girl any day and the 2nd will be for my cousins little boy.  I think it looks like a boy owl don't you?  They are fairly easy and quick to make but they can cost anywhere from $25 to $40.  Wow!  Sure glad I can make them myself!!

you are talking too much />
