I didn't make much for Christmas gifts. I was far too busy and I haven't done a ton of sewing this year. Too much stress and black dog on my shoulder. Which is counter-intutitive because one of the things that makes the black dog go away is making something!!
I did make three pillowcases for the boyos and DH. I found some of the Star Wars Christmas fabric at a JoAnn's I didn't even know existed. There wasn't much on the bolt and one was quilting cotton and the other was flannel. I knew I just had to buy it because I have never seen it in the stores before. At the cutting counter I realized it would be great for pillowcases! And we needed a couple more Christmas pillowcases anyway. My DH had seen the Thor fabric before and I thought it would be fun to make him a Christmas pillowcase for once. I made that one in secret and had the boyos slip it on his pillow for him to find. Also, as I bragged to my sister, this fabric was in stash for fewer than twenty-four hours! A record for me!
I designed this shawl for a Wellness class I taught at work. It is Caron Cakes yarn and I cut out one of the colours that I didn't like. I'm giving it to my niece the Wonder Pixie. I also uploaded the pattern to Ravelry. My first pattern! The Easy Eyelet Shawl.
