My Homemade Christmas Gifts

This year I didn't have many plans for making Christmas gifts, but I really wanted to do something. Thanks to a suggestion from my friend, Stephanie. I bought the book, Wee Wonderfuls, and LOVED it. 
I picked out three projects - one that I thought would fit each of my girls - and got sewing. 
I was happy to find that they weren't too much work. I finished in about 4 days and I was just sewing at naps and night time. I varied the patterns a little bit to my own liking and I think they turned out great for my first doll making projects.

CK's ribbon haired doll:
 L's topsy turvey doll (she was the most time intensive because of a lot of hand sewing):
 And C's Ellie bag (I added a ribbon bow to the back):
By far my favorite gifts to give the girls....and they actually like them.
Oh! and the best part, I just used extra fabric/supplies I already had so they were priced just right.

Those turned out awesome! So cute! Because Evan got sick, I wasn't able to finish my projects from Wee Wonderfuls. I finished my mermaiden...and maybe I'll give that to Mia for her b-day...and then just make the others whenever and give them to the others "just because".

These are all so cute! I need little girls to sew for. My Christmas projects included sewing a felt space shuttle. :)
