Special Sewing For Christmas

We did a few gifts that we couldn't show earlier!  BJ did some of his own fabric drawing.  That was good fun!  He went into quite some detail with his drawings.  I got him to put his name on them too.  I also dated them.  I must admit I stole the idea from Sally when her kids did the aprons.  I had to come up with something we could do too!  What a fabulous idea!  Thanks Sally!

This was drawing day.  (I interrupted his lego play to do the drawings!)

I turned them into oven mitts!  I was excited as once again I could use up a bit of fabric in the cupboard!  Was very cool.  He had fun doing this & he was excited to give them to the grandmothers & honorary Aunt on Christmas Day.  He told them all they were so they didn't burn their hands when they were cooking.  But I didn't really pad them up much so they are really only for warm things!  That's just the way I made them.  Using cotton wadding off cuts as well as fabric!  Yay!  I just had to buy a little bit more to get enough fabric for bias cutting the bindings.   

I need to do another one now.  For me!  Silly me didn't do one for myself at the same time!  DOH!  I definitely need one of these for posterity.     

I actually think these are a great idea!  I think every kid should make something like this!  They are great for mums & grandmothers for Mother's Day!  I will have to think about what else we can make! 

Have a good day!  Back to work for a rest for me!

Often the way we make all these crafty things for others and don't have any for ourselves....
