I know that Christmas has past, but I finally feel like I can share the gifts that I made and gave. We just opened gifts with my parent yesterday, and it's time to share a few things with you.
This is part one of my homemade Christmas gifts. I have some additional gifts that I'll share with you later this week, but as for today, here are a few that don't currently include tutorials.
For The Neck
I ended up making four bow ties, two for my husband, and two for my brother in law. My husband has officially declared that he is a bow tie guy, and so I had to add a couple to his collection. You can find the David Bow Tie pattern at burdastyle.com.
For The Hair
I made up a few headbands for my sister-in-law. She's expecting her first baby, and there's nothing nicer than a headband to make you feel semi-put together at the end of a pregnancy, or after the baby comes.
You can find the leather bow tutorial here, and information on the headband construction here.
For The Kitchen
My Father-in-law has an addiction to tacos, and I don't blame him one single bit. I'm quite fond of tacos myself. I made this tortillero for them, so that their tortillas would stay nice and warm at dinner time. We also gave them a lime press and some freshly made corn tortillas.
Did you miss the tortilla cozy tutorial? You can find it here.
For The Craft Room
Both of our mothers were given needle books. I love mine so much, and figured that they would both appreciate a storage book. I added some simple stacked flowers to dress them up a bit. Both of our mothers do some sewing, so I knew that they would be used.
After giving one to my Mother-in-law, we found out that she normally stores her needles in the curtains, hopefully this is a better solution.
Just a few of the quick little projects that I made for Christmas. I'll have some tutorials and additional Christmas gifts later this week.
Thanks for reading. I'll be linking here.
