Thanksgiving Sewathon!

So my aunt is coming up from Nashville to do Thanksgiving and I wanted to make her Christmas presents early cause I was bored today.

I made her an apron, she requested one that looked retro. Found this super cute snowflake print at Hobby Lobby in the remnant pile and with 3 almost-a-yard pieces I had some left over to make a little thing for me :) For my cousin I made a messenger bag. I found this tree print also at Hobby Lobby and I thought it was great because its not too christmassy and not girly.

So I decided that I don't like the purse that I have been hauling around, it spills stuff all the time yuck! So I made this one out of the scraps of my aunts apron!

And a close up of my new stamp! I went with my friend Debbie to my other friend Pennie's 'Stampin Up! party and I ordered this stamp and its the best thing that I have ever had. After I made these I just stamped my personal stamp and poof! everyone knows I made it. :D

I am the best Auntie

So I got out of my non-sewing funk and made a Christmas present. A pair of pj's for one of my nephews.

"I am Buzz Lightyear"

And to make this set of pj's even better than regular ones, Buzz is sewn on with glow in the dark thread. Am I awesome or what?
