Christmas sewing..

Since I don't get my knitting supplies back until tomorrow I've been spending a little quality time with my sewing machine. Here are some Christmas gifts that are ready for giving!

E is getting a new baby doll for Christmas, and it says on the box: "replacement diapers sold separately." Ha! I don't buy disposable diapers for my baby, so naturally E's will need a cloth diaper stash as well (and let's not forget the cloth wipes!): I used this pattern but adapted it just a little so it will fit more of her babies (longer wings and a piece of velcro so the wings can overlap)
While I was browsing this adorable and crafty blog, I found a post that linked to a bean bag tutorial. They looked easy to make and I had the supplies so I made these for E's stocking. Her name on one side and shapes on the other. I filled them with rice.
And yet again I've made a knitting needle roll from this tutorial that I LOVE. I think this is the 4th one I've made. They are easy but come out looking so professional... a gift that any knitter would love I think!
And Happy Holidays to everyone!


  1. Hi Rebecca. Just discovered your blog (through a google alert that thinks every Rebecca is me!) and enjoyed the read. A well-timed find since I don't happen to have any holiday reading. Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks for the very sweet words. I really do need to get back to blogging now that the holidays are over. You were much more adventerous than I making letters on your bean bags, they look adorable. I love your cloth diapers as well, the thought of disposable diapers on a doll makes me cringe almost as much as the thought of them on a baby lol. Happy Holidays!
