Handmade Christmas Gifts

How are your Christmas plans coming along?  I am slow to get started, but have all my shopping done.  I still have my handmade gifts to work on, but feel good that I finally have a plan and a list. 

Here are a few items on my list this to make this year.  I will also be sharing some canned salsa and pepper jelly from my pantry. 

Plump Partridge Ornaments from Modest Maven blog; thanks, Sew Can She!

Tohuku Totes from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar:
No-Sew Fleece Blankets from A Chelsea Morning:
Hint:  Fleece throws are on sale between $1.99-$2.99 this time of year, making these a super-affordable gift for kids & friends...cheaper than buying the fleece!

Check out my Pinterest Page for hundreds more ideas!  Feel free to link me some of your favorite tutorials for great gifts.

Pattern Testing ~ Go To Leggings

I recently tested a new pattern for Go To Pattern shop, the Go To Leggings.  This is a versatile pattern for sizes 12mo-11/12 that includes shorts, capris, regular and extra-long lengths as well as a skirted option.  Also included are variations including rouching, cargo pockets, bow cut-outs and ribbon trim.  So many ways to customize your leggings!

I made the extra-long rouched leggings.  My free arm made it hard to rouche the inside of the legs, so I only did the outer leg.  These are in thermal knit and my big girl loves them!  I also made a pair of bike shorts using the pattern.  It is definitely a Go-To pattern
