What the?

So, all of a sudden it's Christmas? My mother was right--don't blink. I've been busy getting ready for Christmas while working my tootsies off at school. I'm happy to report that I've finished my Christmas sewing, and I'm a doctoral candidate. finally! and finally!

I made peek-a-boo bags for everyone on my Christmas list. These pouches are highly addictive and after some pattern finagling, pretty darn quick! They measure about 9 X 10 flat, with a vinyl window. I made tissue holders with the leftover fabrics--that's what you see inside the bags here.

I also made a few stockings using a fabulous free pattern from fabricworm; I will throw in a pic of my favorite one--bras and pink polka dots.
One for Mom and the other for her sister, my Aunt Bunnie (being sisters, I had to make them exactly alike, don't you think?)

One for my Aunt Maureen and the other for my boss Sonya--both dog lovers (click on the pic, this print is too cute!)

One for my sister Jen and the other for me!

a matching stocking for Jen--she's going to get a kick out of this!!

HaPpY HoLiDaYs!
May the coming year be full of happiness, laughter, prosperity, balance, and plenty of Chinese takeout!

UPDATE: I will be doing a tutorial for a bag similar to this over at Madame Samm's on February 8th!
