It's a cozy cozy christmas. I didn't mean for it to happen, but it turns out my christmas gifts have a theme this year. I guess we all have too much stuff, so now we need stuff to put our stuff in.
A knitting needle cozy:
and a tissue cozy (that is going to my nana who is 104!)
All the patterns were from online tutorials (this christmas season I am thankful for the internet). They can be found here, here, and here respectively. I can see the end of my christmas list now and I am very excited. I really didn't know what I was getting into with the whole handmade pledge thing. Now that I think about it I haven't bought anything--except for some thread and notions and a couple "just in case I forgot someone gift." But somehow the money still gets spent: pounds and pounds of butter for cookies, wrapping paper, tape, more tape, shipping. It was a lot of time spent sewing, which I couldn't have done without a very supportive husband to watch the babies (and vacuum!), but I am pretty satisfied with myself. Let's just hope the recipients like them too.
