Sewing Christmas Gifts

                                                         Sewing  In November

                                               I have  not done any sewing for me in November,I    
                                               have been sewing some Christmas gifts. And lots and
                                               lots of costumes for different Churches and Schools.
                                               I didn't post photos of the costumes...I have done
                                               that in the past..and they all look alike.ha.

Cross Pillow cover.. Made from an off white linen fabric,
for a friend of mine.. She just built a new house, and
has an antique church pew in her entry way.. She
wanted a pillow cover, with  a cross on it.. Hope
she likes it!!

Christmas pocket t-shirts ..

Remember , the snowmen dresses that I made for
my friend's daughters.. Well, I had some scrap
fabric left.. and thought I would do them a
matching purse for Christmas.

Log Cabin Quilt block
I made 2 of these for my sister.. I am going to make them into
pillow covers.

Sorry for the bad photo..
Young fellow at my post office just had twin girls.
So I made the mama a pocket t-shirt with the yellow
gingham check. Appliqued the foot prints, and put
the girls initials inside the feet prints. The dresses
are yellow check with navy check trimming and ties.
I did the same applique as Mama's. This was fun
to make.

RTW scarf, that  embroidered Initials  on ,
for Cindy [my daughter]

Christmas Skirt for a special little girl!!

Hunting theme Christmas stocking ornaments..
now.. I couldn't leave Kenny out.. Yes...... I
went and bought a cheap tree for the hunting
cabin, and make  these stockings and   I also
made some pine cone ornaments for it.

I have been super busy sewing.. Just no garments for me..
Hopefully, I will make a Christmas outfit before
December is over???

Happy sewing to each of you..


  1. You've been busy! What nice gifts! I especially *LOVE* the tee and matching dresses for mom and babies. So very kind!

    1. Thank you Mrs. Smith... I had fun making the dresses for the twin babies..[Reminded me of our twin granddaughters...who are now 9 yrs old.]

  2. Wow, you've been busy! I especially love the log cabin quilt block.

    1. Thank you Dianna..
      I really liked the log cabin blocks too. Would love to do a whole quilt.. Maybe someday , time will allow.ha

  3. All cute stuff. Sometimes it is fun working on little projects and gifts.

  4. Wow Judy, you have been BUSY!!! They are all darling. I can't even choose a favorite. The skirt, twins, pillow cover... I haven't done any sewing for myself either. I did get the girls PJ's finished. Maybe I will be able to get a new something made for me for Christmas?? We'll see. I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas.

    1. Thank you Robin.. Really busy..but, I think everyone, is this time of year. Maybe both of us will sew a "me" something this month???? I too, wish you and your family a blessed and Merry Christmas..

  5. What wonderful gifts. I love handmade gifts...they seem so much more special than store bought. I crocheted purses for my little granddaughters. I sure hope they like them. Blessings sweet friend. To answer your question about Paula. She is no longer blogging ,but she does has a Pinterest and facebook account. She has settled into her new home and doing well. I miss her blog,but she said she doesn't have time to keep up with blogging right now. I let her know through her Pinterest account that you asked had about her.

    1. Thank you Shelly, I too , love handmade gifts..So nice !! I just know,your granddaughters will love the purses.. Because Grandma made them.. They will be special.
      Thank you ,for letting me know about Paula. I have been praying for her.She touched my heart.

  6. What a lovely little collection of gifts - as you are so hospitable, I think you will get a lot of satisfaction out of making and giving these little gifts - and some lucky people will enjoy receiving them too :)

  7. Judy you amaze me with your talent and beautiful crafts. These are so thoughtful and delightful. The recipients are going to be thrilled to recieve these. Simply wonderful!
