MOVING on, Christmas is close, yes it is only the 2nd, but this year we are doing things a bit different in my family. Our gifts we are giving are all going to be made and or upcycled, well except for the gifts Santa leaves. :)
Im going to try to share as many as I can on here, before Christmas so maybe you will wanna try some too. Some will have to wait so that all members of the family won't see their gifts. :) I have to tell you this has been the most fun I have ever had shopping for Christmas. There is real thought going into each and every item. Our weekends are filled with thrifting at second hand stores and our weeks are filled with construction.
I have been scouring the internet getting ideas for many many gifts and together we work through them. Some we scrap even though they look great on other peoples sites, when we try it and rework they just don't work.
Today I am going to share 2 items, the first is an infinity type scarf I made for my mom's birthday. I again didn't take any pictures but the site I will post has nice ones and my project turned out exactly like hers aside from the color. I used lion brand thick and quick in an eggplant color. This was a very easy pattern and I think even a beginner could make this. I highly suggest this as a gift or for yourself!

Well that is all for today. Ill be back in a day or so with some things I am making using vintage sheets! Im excited! Fingers crossed that what is in my head turns out just as great!
Happy gift making!
