Here are a couple of projects I've already finished. Some felted slippers for our sisters:
The pattern is called Duffers by Mindie Tallack. It was so, so easy. 19 rounds of knitting in bulky yarn, sewing up the bottom, and picking up the button flap. I got the suggestion for the button flap from PurlDiva's notes.
I also dug out the old sewing machine and took it for a proverbial spin:
I found this tutorial on Pinterest and thought it would be good practice for the amateur seamstress (me). Definitely saw improvement in my ability to sew a straight line by the last one. These were another really quick and easy project. I ended up making a total of 7--the 5 you see above, plus 2 more not pictured--in just 2 sittings! These will make great stocking stuffers :)
What's left? Oh lots: 2 more big knitting projects, 2 more sewing projects, and a few miscellaneous etchings--plus baking. Busy, busy, busy! But I wouldn't have it any other way. You know what they say about idle hands...
...they climb up Christmas trees. Or maybe that's kitty feet. Anyway, we've got ours up and the apartment nice and decorated, complete with naughty, climbing critters. I can tell he's been up there by how flat the middle branches are. Tsk tsk.
What are you making for Christmas presents this year?
