I am all done with sewing Christmas gifts.
I feel very good about everything I made.
And, I made all gifts except
the 2 gift cards I bought for my grandsons.
I never did get around to making
any hot pads/potholders, though.
I guess I can work on them at my leisure
and give them as gifts throughout the year...
or save them for next Christmas!
Here are the last of the napkins...
Here is a photo of some of what I made.
When I took this photo, I had already mailed
out some gifts, and was not finished making others.
Here are the stats:
22 kleenex cozies
1 zippered pouch
1 sweatshirt jacket
All fabric used came from my stash
except for 1.5 yards for napkins
and 1/2 yard for sweatshirt jacket facings.
I used 24 yards of fabric for napkins,
4 yards for aprons and
mostly scraps for kleenex cozies.
I generated a few more scraps
for myself in the process.
That is a lot of fabric!
And, truth be told...not all of the napkins
are going out as Christmas gifts.
I may have overdone it a bit.
I was just so happy sewing
and listening to music
that I made napkins out of any fabric
that I either had no immediate use for,
or just plain thought
would make great napkins!
Truth be told,
there are some sets that
I am going to keep for myself!
And, what this means...
is that I have the next week
to do whatever I want!
Like, finish one quilt top
and start another!
I need to find a way to baste some quilts...
don't want to move all those flimsies with me.
Thank you, God,
for giving me the ability
(and fabric!) to do this.
