Christmas Presents... Finally!!!

I made Andrew's Sister and Brother-in-law matching St. Patrick's Day aprons for Christmas. They are super into St. Patty's; every year they throw an awesome house party with pipers and corned beef & cabbage and soda bread and lots more. I thought that these aprons would be perfect.

My sewing machine can do basic embroidery so around the pocket on each apron it says their name. This one is Stephanie's; I forgot to get a picture of Sean's.

The aprons are practically identical except for the stitching around the pocket.

I made my Brother and his Girlfriend laptop cozies because I saw this tutorial and knew that I had to make one for them both. They are both into the retro games and I knew that this would be the perfect gift.

I had so much fun making all of these gifts. It really was great to finally be sewing for other people again.

Bumper Issue Solved!!!

I finally decided how I was going to tightly secure the bumpers to the crib. I took some leftover fabric from the dust ruffle and sewed it into a tube and then secured the ends together to make a loop and then I just tightly tied the bumper pads to it on each side.

Hurray for finishing projects!!!
