december rewind no. 7 {handmade holiday}

well, i tried to get these december rewind posts done by the end of january! i swear. but i couldn't make it happen. so here is the last of them and one of my favorite projects.

as you may know, i've been working my way through amanda soule's books. and so, for the holidays i made bedtime bags from her book The Creative Family. i made 3. one for each of my kids and another for my niece.

i loved putting these together. they were really simple and i picked out some sweet fabrics for them. i chose books for each of them and daydreamed about not having to pick pj's up off of the floor anymore. now they have a place to go!

for each i made flannel jammy pants. snowmen! soft, but no super high-quality. i'll spring for better flannel next time, but this time, i was just impressed with myself that i made THREE pairs of pants. and they all fit! a miracle!

so, thank you amanda for another great project! i'm happy to report that the kids use them, love them and my niece said when she saw it and the pants, "i'm starting to think my aunt is magical!"

doesn't get better than that!

It definitely doesn't get better than that! I love it when my son (almost 3) gets some new thing bought at a big box store and asks if I made it for him. But being called "magical" - that would be awesome.

You are magical! Your projects all turned out beatiful! Don't you just love choosing fabrics together?
Amanda Soule's books are just wonderful! (must get my hand on an other copy!)

how's winter on your end? here the snow has all gone, but still it freezes and we await a new series of snowfall by the end of the week....
