Yeah, we'll see how that works out...
First, came the aprons.
Aren't they adorable? This is one of two sets that I was hired to make (Thank you, Miss Chris!!!!). I absolutely love this fabric and was thrilled when I had a little extra to go in my stash!
I also made 4 more of the full sized ones as gifts which, I regret to say, I didn't get any pictures of.
This is what "helping Mana work" looks like. ;)
I have no idea what these things are actually called, but I just call them drawstring backpacks. I really don't remember where the original idea came from, but this is what I came up with. This isn't the greatest picture for details, but I just thought it was adorable of the girls. :)
The straps are just nylon cording doubled up on both sides. I ran these through a grommet in each of the bottom corners and knotted them together.
I made six of these bags. Two of them were for the boys so, thankfully, that was 8 less ruffles to do. Yay!
I still can't believe that I managed to make something for everybody. Well, everyone except the guys. What do you make guys as gifts? I have never been able to figure that one out...
Now that Christmas is out of the way, I am really looking forward to the New Year. I've had so many ideas for projects over the last month and a half and I can't wait to roll my sleeves up and dive into some of them!
Happy New Year, everyone!
