Making Progress on Handmade Christmas Gifts

I'm making some progress on the Christmas list I have of handmade goodies. I made four fabric baskets and I plan on making a few more. I made 2 back in May and gave one away for the Sew Mama Sew May Give away. They are adorable and I think they make great gifts.

The tutorial is here.

I made this one longer than the pattern calls. I think this would be a good size for a bread basket.

The next one is the size stated in the pattern. I used some of my Sweet stash. I love these peeps!

Another pic, can you tell I love this one! This is for a sweetie, someone very special♥

This one is Spideyman inspired! for another someone very special♥

And this one is for my mom. She loves chickens. So I thought this would be cute. These are so fun and easy to make and they are a million times cuter in real life!

I also made my mom a checkbook cover. I made one for myself last year and she has been commenting on it since. So I got around to that also. I hope she likes it. Note more chickens!

The tutorial for this project is here.

I also finished a top for a table runner, again for my mom, I'll show that when I have it quilted. I have also been making lots of nine patches for her quilt. I'm not sure that's gonna be finished for Christmas, but I do work well under pressure so I'm gonna try.

Thanks for stopping by!
