43 Days to Christmas

Celebrating the holidays will be different this year for all of us.   I've been thinking about ways that I want to celebrate the holidays, simplify things where I can, and still make gifts for people who are important to me.

I'm loving the process of making these journal covers and think they will make a fun stocking stuffer gift for a few friends and family on my list.  I'm using these moleskin notebooks - you can get them with lines, blank pages or dots!

These Hipster Bags (see my previous post)  are a lot of fun to make and thought I would make at least one more for a family member.  The pattern is available to MQG members.

Last year, I made several pillow as Christmas gifts (see that post) and they were a big hit.  I am going want to make a new pillow for my Mom to compliment the VW pillow I gave her last year.

I usually make something for each of my 3 kids too.  Not sure what it will be this year so need to get to work on ideas!

43 days to go to Christmas (even less when you account for package mailing) - time to finish my list and get sewing!  Its always a magical time of the  year!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. The journal covers are lovely; great ideas and I hope you strike on the perfect make for your kids.

  2. Hi Patty! Those journal covers are the bomb. Fab-u-lous. I can't wait to see what you make for your Mom to complete the Slug Bug pillow. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Love the journal covers and I need a new bag, so I am going to check that one out!

  4. It will definitely be a different Christmas. The journal covers are a great idea.

  5. The journal covers are really fun. Good luck with your holiday stitching. It's going to be a really different holiday this year.
