Homemade gifts & Christmas Elf Weekend

I had so much fun getting into the crafty, homemade goodness of Christmas this year. Most afternoons while Jacob slept you would find me listening to Christmas music while sitting at my sewing machine or in my kitchen.

One morning my friend Jenny came over and we whipped up these great snowmen shirts for both of our families to wear as Christmas jammies. I also made our family matching flannel pajama pants.
I also made this little onesie for our niece Ava . . .
with a matching fabric tutu.
Additional projects: bacon jam, brown sugar scrub, photo books, embroidered towels, placemats and hand print ornaments for grandparents' Christmas trees (and ours).

The weekend before we left for Christmas my sister-in-law made a quick trip here so we could work on some secret Christmas Elf presents.

Our primary project was an iPad cover for my mother-in-law's iPad. We loved it so much we made one for each of us! And monogrammed them so we could tell them apart.
We also made this little Hogwarts onesie for our niece.Additional projects: jars of Christmas Scent,
and lots and lots and lotsof Christmas baking
and chocolate dipping.
