Christmas Projects

What a busy but wonderful month December has been so far!

Still have not gotten pics of a few things (scrappy rag quilts for 4 of kiddos; matching PJ pants for dh and 2 boys, apron for best friend and myself, and scrappy rag quilt alphabet letters). Hope to do that tomorrow but the snow here has been crazy! We have drifts 4 1/2 to 5 feet high! I had hoped to go to JoAnns today to get some of the bias tape maker gadgets since they are 40% off this week but that is going to have to wait because we have a huge snow drift outside the garage door and my van is not 4 wheel drive LOL.

Christmas Projects:

Reversible Apron for my cousin for Christmas
My cousin does not like halter ties around her neck. Modified this apron to criss cross across her back - put D rings at the sides rather than waist ties so the two straps that come from the neck criss cross across her back then through the D rings and tie either in front or in back. Created the ties incredibly long so that she could decide if she wanted to tie in back or wrap to front and tie. Figured she could always trim and hem them short after she got it and I'd rather them be too long intially than too short. The green does not look like it matches in the photos. It appears almost a neon type green but it is not. It is the same green that is in the cupcakes and the paisly print. In real life it is beautiful together. Chose the green contrasting trim color because her husband's favorite color is green.

One of our DD's slippers before I dyed them and before felting. One of her favorite colors is red but I could not find red yarn that I liked so I over-dyed these.
