My Family's Quilts n More

This is a shirt I made for my father along with 4 other shirts. I mailed them out on Friday and I hope they get the package today. I spent the night before putting on buttons and button holes. I stayed up until 2:00 a.m. as I was determined to get this done in time for Xmas. I did the happy dance once it was in the mail.

This is the two sides of my middle son's quilt. He wanted orange fleece backing. These are all scraps from projects I've made in the past. I can actually tell you what was made with each piece.

This is my mother in law's quilt. She wanted red on the back of hers-well assumed since it is her favorite color.

This is my father in law's quilt. I didn't have any red, orange or yellow blocks so I mixed it up with green,blue and purple. I picked green for the back of his.

This is my hubby's quilt. He has a blue flannel backing.

Here's my youngest son's quilt of X-men with a blue fleece backing.

This my oldest son's quilt with a Marvel's Punisher patch on it. I added a periwinkle fleece backing to it.

I finished them up by Sun. and I'll end up doing this next year again.
Merry Xmas

Handmade Xmas Gifts-Barrette Holder

I've made these for myself before but I ended up putting them in a container because I was hanging so many up that I that it collasped under the wait. So keep in mind this is for a few barrettes and not the really heavy ones.

Handmade Xmas Gifts-No Sew Fleece Scarf

I will be trying to post a tutorial(mostly directing you to one)of making handmade gifts. Right now I'm working on those quilts that I posted awhile back. I probably won't make anything else as they are very time consuming to make.

Anyway, here is the first post for handmade gifts. How to make a no sew fleece scarf. I've made these a few for gifts and they are quite easy. I've used pinking shears for added effect on these.

Here is the Tutorial
