A hat, a bag, and a blanket!

I am excited to show off some of my Christmas gifts to you all.  I know most people showed off their goods on December 25, but I have never been on time! hahahaha  So first, a bag for my mom.  The fabric is all about San Francisco, which is the big city by our house.  I LOVE how it turned out!  I packaged some fun goodies in it for her.

Also, I was inspired by the Green Bag challenge on Sew Mama Sew.  I know I missed the deadline and all for the prizes, but I still wanted to share what I did.  I got a few bags from Old Navy last year, after Christmas (for super cheap) for gifts for my sisters.  And the tiny bag was on sale at Hancock... it was the perfect size for coasters!!

Next, I finished the crochet squares afghan for my mother in law.  I LOVE how it turned out.  What do you think?

I also made a phannie hat for my sister in law.  It is not my style, but I am hoping she liked it!

I think the yarn was too stiff.  It isn't soft and lush like I wanted.  I think I am going to have to remake it for her!  My cousin also wants one in white... remember my post from yesterday??

How did all of your Christmas gifts turned out?  I made more, but haven't taken pictures of them all!


  1. I like everything . . I have the phannie hat started in baby pastel cotton I got from a friend in England . . .Ihave a BIG skull . . sounds so much better than a big head . . so this should fit well.

    Now, your MIL's blanket is so neat . . love the color combination and the simplicity (at least it looks simple) of the design.

  2. Your projects turned out really well! Love them.


Comments make me happy! Thanks for leaving a word to let me know you are reading! :)
