The Christmas Crafts

I don't know that this interests anyone, but I thought I would share anyway. These are a few of the things I made this year. I didn't get as many things made as I would have liked, but it was fun all the same.
My sister Katie had a baby in June and my mom made my nephew a blanket with this fabric. I asked for the leftovers so I could make these soft blocks. That's a lion on the bottom left.

Trying to learn some embroidery + being really cheap when it comes to Christmas gifts= this gift for my mom.

Instructions for these have been floating around the internets and I thought Avery should have one for dance class. I think it turned out cute.

They all look great! You are super crafty. I'm always so impressed that you try new things and aren't scared of "the new" like I am.

I love that you are so crafty. It makes me feel a little bad that I don't any thing of the sort, but hey I am who I am right? Those crafts are seriously adorable.
