Christmas List Part 2

Remember this list? Believe it or not, I've actually put a small dent in it. So far, I've made:

This reversible smockette for the B, that criss-crosses in the back. I *love* this pattern. SO EASY!!! And so cute! I got the pattern for free from here.
I also made this little elf feet t-shirt for B using applique'. I made the skirt to match. Here she is modeling it. She is such a flattering little thing, she now constantly asks me to sew things for her. I love it.

This is one crayon roll to be used as a gift for a little girl. Thank goodness these are so easy to make because I know a bunch of young children around the age of 3-4 that are getting these for christmas from me this year.

I only know one little boy. LOL So this fishy one is for him. The rest of them will be made out of more girly fabric.

I've also made the baby one pair of dinosaur pajama pants, which I don't have a picture of at the moment. Actually.... he's wearing them right now.... lemme just sneak in there and take a picture really quick.........

Yep. Here they are. Don't you love how he sleeps with his little bottom poked up in the air? The pants are made out of this really soft blanket flannel and took about 30 minutes to make from start to finish. While I was in there, I went ahead and snapped a picture of this adorable hand knit bunny that was given to me for the baby by the wonderful ladies over at Red Tent Temple at this month's meeting.
Is he not the cutest thing ever?! He's made from a bamboo yarn that is incredibly soft. I love his big floppy ears. I was so touched!
Aside from all of that, I'm about half-way finished with Tim's pj's and then I'm going to be starting on the sketch pencil cases because those have to be mailed out soonish and I already have all the fabric I need for those. So I'm just slowly chipping away at everything, one item at a time. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the feeling of this being my "job," and am wondering if it would change if I started sewing to make a little extra money as opposed to just doing it for people I love. It's something to think about certainly, but for now I'm content sewing for my friends and family.

*laughs* Tammie, I have had that exact same day I'm sure... about two weeks ago! That first period right after having a baby and not having had one for like a year is always really agonizing.
