Made With Love

I’ve got some handmade gifts thrown in with my store bought gifts for Christmas.   I already showed you one here.  This can be done as a “no sew” project, but because I used remnants {and decided to add a trim} there was sewing involved for me.  This is the pattern I purchased on Etsy.

When I found these two fleece fabrics in the Joann’s remnant bins, I knew I had to get them and make something with them.  I couldn’t resist the “I Love Grandma” for my granddaughter {which I had already cut into before I remembered to take a picture}.

My daughter loves owls so I knew I had to come up with something for her as well.  Ponchos seemed the easiest thing to do other than a fleece throw.  I actually used a poncho I found at Goodwill to get the size to cut for my granddaughter’s.

I had to sew this one together {front to back} because of the way the remnant was cut.  I also sewed around the neckline and added this really cute pink pompom trim.

Whenever I see pompom trim it reminds me of curtains my Mom made for the bedroom I shared growing up in Brooklyn.   I have it positioned on my little wire mannequin, which is probably too little, hence the clothespins holding it on.

Here is the owl one for my daughter.  More pompom trim on this one ~ in purple.

I am modeling this one since I don’t have a full size mannequin.    This was the last gift and I’m glad to say I’m done!

I adore hand made gifts! These look so cozy!! I wasn't able to share any of the handmade gifts I did this year, as most are for my Mom and she reads my blog-perhaps I'll share after Xmas =)

How adorable Kathy!! I just love these! What a great idea and I wish I had more time to make a couple of these. Thanks for the idea. Merry Christmas Kathy!

Hi Kathy, Aren't these just adorable. Love the sweet fabrics. Thank you for sharing these ideas too. Love it.
One year a friend of mine, visited her Aunt in Chicago. The whole family decided to go Caroling around the neighborhood. Her Aunt had made matching scarfs for all in red flannel fabric, with cut fringe. It was a hit and they all looked like a little singing group.

Thank you for stopping by my friend. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
XO Celestina Marie

Your new home is just beautiful for the holidays. Love the peek of your tree Cute owls! Dinner with TSG last evening, she had on the most stylish black wool cape with military buttons. Your ponchos are so IN! E

Those are cute. I'd like to see in person to see how they are made. I could make something that doesn't have to be sewn.....hah. For your granddaughter it is perfect to fit in the car seat. Those warm winter jackets are hard to snap the straps around. With our changing weather the straps wouldn't have to be adjusted all the time. Love them. Ilove owls as well. Happy Holidays.

Aw, I love pom pom trim. I have it on my bedroom curtains! I'd like to make some lampshades and use pom pom trim on them. Cute poncho!

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Oh, those are just too cute for words! Those pom pom trim reminds me of the outfits my mom made me in grade school where she put that trim around the bottom of the top of my pant suits(that you could also wear as a dress!) It was the 70's...what do you expect!

Have a Merry Christmas!
