Monday Makers! #16 :)

HAHA Santa's workshop is a hustling bustling place right now - fun fun fun! First up - a couple of pictures that relate to projects that are already completed :D  Sally asked about the zipper pulls on the owl bags, and I hadn't yet taken pics of the little zipper pulls I made for the penguin bags, so here we go - pictoral updates :D

Beaded zipper pulls for Christmas owl bags :)

Personalized zipper pulls for penguin/bird bags :)
Next up - Monday Makers! #16 - and I'm ready for action!  I started several projects today - all are for Christmas gifts, not surprisingly :D

This project is somewhat of a secret - at least, until I get both of them finished :D  I think I may have already spilled the beans as to what it is, but I'm too lazy to check, LOL.

Close-up of the green bits :D

OOPS - talk about spilling the beans - here's the completed pink version, but you only get to see part of it :D 

And here we have the makings for 2 drawstring bags - I'm using up the last of the cardinals fabric for these, and the lining is a thrift store tablecloth!  It has some black blobbies on it that I've been cutting around, lol.  These are the "wrap" for the owl bags - hopefully I did the size calculations right ;)
Hubby and DS2 aren't coming home tomorrow night for supper - they have a Christmas dinner @ work so I don't have to cook for them.  One guess as to who's going to be sewing in the basement ;)

So who is finished their Christmas sewing/crafting/baking/preparation?  If you're not, what do you still need to get done, and do you think you'll get it done in time?  I seem to have things under control - it's actually kinda spooky, LOL!

  1. That's a dangerous thing to say Sandra :-) I have several things that I would like to make but it won't be the end of the world if they don't get made.

    Look forward to the big reveal !

  2. The last couple of days I've taken time off sewing to do some much needed cleaning and organizing. I'm feeling much better already. The downstairs is practically done so tomorrow I'll be back to orders. Nobody is going to see the upstairs so I'll leave that till I have more time. Christmas is a quiet time for us so I'll be doing what I normally do, sewing, cooking and cleaning. No special food to prepare before hand as it's just the three of us for Christmas dinner. Have fun while the boys are away.

  3. The little zipper pulls are so sweet. The girls are going to LOVE their zippies. The little drawstring bag picture with the name tags is just divine - gorgeous fabric for a gift bag. Enjoy the house to yourself!!!

  4. I love the personalized zipper pulls! Did you use necklace clasps and jump rings for those? I'm been wanting to make some small pouches for a couple students to keep hearing aids/batteries in when needed, but also want the pouches to have their names {in case they are misplaced}… I have some shrinky dinks that would be perfect for making little personalized pulls!

  5. Hmmm, I think I've guessed what the secret project is! All I have to do for Christmas is write the cards and send them and wrap the presents. I did all my christmas shopping online one lunchtime and I put the decorations up last week. it does help that there will be no christmas sewing/baking/crafting at my house at all!
