I've been having a good time making homemade things for my family this year. I was catching up on blogs (finally!) and came across Nana Company's Tag-A-Long project and knew I just had to use her cute templates to make up some fabric gift tags of my own. Mine pale in comparison to her beautiful creations (just take a look at her gorgeous embroidery versions for week 4!) but they were fun. And not so bad for my first time.
My mother's (Mamaw) has a pocket on the back which looks like a miniature quilt, and I apparently failed to get a photo of it. Darn. It's really cute! I'll probably stick a peppermint in there. :)
I've also been musing over some new clothes for Victoria. I never really have been a "Christmas dress" kind of person, but I think it would be kind of cute to make her a new dress for her visit to my parent's this Christmas time. What got me started on this? Well, see, I've been crocheting all kinds of gifts this year, and as I was perusing my Japanese crochet books, I came across this:
And wouldn't that little grey dress be adorable with a tot-sized version of this neck warmer? (I already made one of these this year for a certain someone, and it's a fun alternative to a scarf or cowl.)
Or I could make a tot-sized bolero? I'm thinking a pearl-colored chunky alpaca yarn I have two skeins of. Wonder if that'll be too scratchy for her. Hmmm...
Fun stuff to think about. Now I'm off to get crafty with a certain small person. Nothing like cotton ball snowmen pasted to paper plates with glitter buttons to warm ones heart. Happy holidays, y'all.
