Christmas Gifts- Pillow Cases

I am beginning this post before Christmas, but will post this after the Holidays.

Every year I enjoy making gifts.  Last year I made small drawstring bags to go in everyones stockings.  This year I decided to make a pillowcase for everyone.  I was just going to make one pillowcase for each child and then use that as the wrapping.  But this year as I started planning gifts, I decided that making a pillow case for most everyone was a better idea.  Plus I got a new Bernina Sewing Machine as my Christmas gift from my wonderful husband, so I decided to put it to good use.




I did manage to make a couple more pillowcases for others, but I guess I failed to take a picture of them.  Oh well….  I had a lot of fun making these.


Christmas Mug Rugs

Seems as though this Holiday Season has come and gone quicker than it did last year.  I did manage to make Christmas Mug Rugs before we had a house full of company for Christmas.  I had a fun time making these mug rugs this time around.  I got a new sewing machine as an early Christmas present, so I had a lot of fun exploring all the different options that it comes with.

Here are some pictures of the fun that I had:
