Twin Ornaments

It officially Christmas ornament season! These are for my 4 year old nieces. Since they are twins, I made the ornaments identical, but emphasized their initials a little more with the B and G ribbon. I also made the tops a little fancier than usual with rhinestones instead of buttons and some looped ribbon to add a little more pink.

Try making one yourself with this tutorial.

Play Kitchen Accessories

Julie is making Claire a play kitchen for Christmas, so she wanted me to make an apron for Claire. I do not usually make apparel, and without having Claire on hand to actually measure, I used a tutorial to make an adjustable apron. I opted to make it only 16" long however, since I didn't want it to be too long.

I also made a few accessories:

Hexagon Blocks

In September, Amanda went to visit her Grandma. While there, she sent me a photo of these hexagon quilt blocks, which were made by Amanda's grandma's mother-in-law, and said she was giving them to me. I was astonished to receive such an amazing gift! They are all hand-stitched. Amanda gave them to me when I saw her earlier this month, and we looked through all of them. Of course the first thing I did when I got home was sort them all. A lot of research and deliberation will be required before I commit to a project!

There are 50 total blocks, with only a few duplicates. The 43 unique blocks are pictured below:

Elmo Bag

This is Claire's Halloween treat bag. She loves Elmo, so I figured this would be more appreciated and used than a Halloween themed bag.

Finished size: 6" x 2" x 7.5" plus handles
