More holiday gifts…

Cork Wreath. BF and I made three of these this year for various family members and friends. Upcycled corks are boiled and dried before glued on to the wreath. I made personalized bags for all three of them too.

Over Thanksgiving I taught my BF’s niece how to crochet and then her x-mas wish list, to my delight, included crochet items. So I made this case for her hooks and a new hook. She is 12. This is my first ever quilted project. I just dove in. Didn’t really use a tutorial, I just kinda winged it. Turned out pretty much the way I wanted it to.

Now that the gift has been gifted I can post pictures.

Made my second starghan, its a ridiculous 78″ from point to point. It took me a month of crocheting in my down time. I am really happy with the colors and the way that it turned out. It is picture here on my queen size bed. It is definitely the largest afghan I have ever made.

Then I made this awesome pillow case to serve as a gift bag. I didn’t use a pattern other than getting the size from a pillowcase that I already had and then I made it a little larger in case of shrinkage.

The result:
