Christmas Round-Up

I’m not the sort of person who posts about the presents I’m making for other people before they get them. I just don’t like spoiling the surprise. I understand it makes for better blogging if you do; other people can get inspired by your craftiness and share your general stress as the Christmas deadline approaches and you realize in a cold panic that you’re way behind.

Anyway, I find it satisfying to list them here as a monument to my crafting accomplishments. Even if it’s less exciting.

Pants for the baby (fabric from Superbuzzy, pattern my design):
