Handmade Gifts

Now that we have had our biggest Christmas get-together (yesterday! it was really nice to see all my family), I can post pictures of some of the handmade gifts I made this season.

I embroidered and then made this bag for my younger sister (pictures aren’t the best, sorry!):

I made these Charlie Brown themed felt ornaments for my Gram (you may remember an in-progress photo):


I made this bag for my older sister (she loves to knit, so I embroidered/appliqued knitting needles knitting, then sewed up the bag, creating my own pattern as I went):


This table runner (for my younger sister & her husband):

Finished Project table runner

This embroidery for my mom:


A bag for my sister-in-law:


And more things I didn’t take pictures of (placemats, coasters. etc)– oops. I also baked cappuccino chip dark chocolate chewy cookies, chocolate chip pumpkin bread, and cranberry brownies as gifts, too.


I’ll share the recipe for these soon.

  1. What a lovely group of homemade gifts. I know your family was touched by what you made for each of them, not only because you made it yourself, but because you thought about each person and tailored the gift to them. . . How special!

    I LOVE those Charlie Brown ornaments, your Gram is my kid of lady!

    Thanks for sharing sweetie,

    • Thanks for your lovely words, Maureen!

      My Gram LOVED the ornaments! We are huge Charlie Brown fans and watch every special for every holiday, sometimes when it isn’t even the holiday! πŸ™‚

  2. wow, you were really making up a storm!! I didn’t get to the charlie brown ornaments this year 😦 next year. your embroidery is fantastic, I need to do more to get better.

    • Thanks, Jane! I have seen a real improvement in my abilities since I started embroidering regularly. I guess practice really does make a difference! πŸ™‚ And those Charlie Brown ornaments were so fun, you’ll love them when you do them next year!
