Some Holiday Gifts

Now that all gifts have been received, I wanted to share a few things I made for family for Christmas.  (My Mom's gift took 28 days to go from NC to NJ!)

I had a FQ of this ballet fabric in my stash for awhile and decided to create a banner for my daughter's room.  I appliqued on the letters and had some fun placing them so they framed the dancers!

My daughter loved it and hung it across the window in her room.

For Mom, I made a pillow using fabric printed from Spoonflower.  This is all of her grandchildren and 2 spouses taken summer 2019.

I made yet another Hipster bag for one of my sisters in her favorite hunter green color. 

Finally, a bunch of journal covers.  These are very fun and satisfying to make!

Overall, my gift makes were less ambitious than prior years but I enjoyed the process and didn't feel rushed - a gift to myself.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. What a great set of gifts - I am sure they are all well loved.

  2. These are gorgeous gifts and I'm sure they'll all be adored. I love your journal covers and that one with the floral arrangement is so eye catching.

  3. Wonderful gifts... I especially love that photo pillow!

  4. How nice of you to take time to make thoughtful gifts. I'm sure they were all appreciated. "Ballet" is so cute! Golly, but your package took a long time, didn't it? Even by US standards. I ordered - and now wish I hadn't - a cell phone holder/stand that I saw advertised on Instagram. Went to the company's website to place my order on December 9, and it still hasn't arrived. It's an international shipment, but who knew it would take months?!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
