Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Pre-Christmas Sewing

Now that all of the gifts have been unwrapped, I can show some pics of the fun things I made.






I made these (from this) for my neices and had so much fun with it.  I wasn’t sure how they would like them because I know that clothing isn’t a favorite gift for kids to receive at Christmas.  Abbie (4) said, “I didn’t want a skot”.  It was really pretty cute.  Skirts are actually their favorite thing to wear, everyday…all year long, so I think they’ll like them.  Because of the crazy colors I used though, I probably should go out and buy them some tops to match.

I showed you this afgan that I bought…

img_1958Here’s the bag I made from it, for my wanna-be hippie girl.  She loved it.  It may have been her favorite gift.   The center block below the button is a pocket that I made a sewed over the center block.

img_1959I made these funny little zippered bags for my kids.  They are small but fun and cute.

img_1996As of last night I have all of my kids home for a few days.  Things liven up a bit when my #1 child arrives. I’m excited for these days.  It will be a while before we are all together again.  I’m hoping to have some (non-professional) family pics taken today.
