Christmas Presents Part 2

Here's the second part of the homemade Christmas presents I did this year. This blanket is for my niece Madalyn as part of my mother-in-laws eternal present to her grandkids. I had so much fun working on this and the elephants are more iron-ons like the ones done for this blanket here. I call it the Jungle Elephants quilt since the green and purple batik fabric kind of reminds me of the jungle. It was a big hit. 
 Because these ones are white, I needed to enhance the lines. I hand stitched the black thread on all four. It really made them look great. This one was made from all scraps I had left over from a blanket I did in the same color scheme for Christmas for a friend's daughter two Christmases ago. 

 I loved the purple polka dot fabric I was able to find for the back. LOVED IT!!!

Purple seems to be the choice color for this post, much like red was the theme for the last one. I didn't do that on purpose. Haha. This apron is for my 13 year old niece Holland. Purple is her favorite color and I couldn't ever get her to narrow down exactly what she wanted for Christmas so this is what she got. I love how it turned out. The straps and pleating are actually done in cream even though they look white in the pictures. It's so cute if I say so myself. :) And I love that Santa got me this adjustable dress form for Christmas. It was fun to use it for this project. 

I was so excited how the pleats turned out and how even I was able to make them. Hope she likes it. I haven't been able to give it to her yet.

  1. wow Tiff! you are so talented!!! Do you use patterns or just make it up as you go?

    1. With the blankets it is mostly just made up as I go along. The apron I traced around an apron my sister-in-law had but the pleating and waist and neck straps I just made up as I went. Glad you check on me. :)

  2. I love the's darling. I've been needing to make several and have yet to try my hand at it for fear they won't fit right. I have a great pattern so maybe this will be the year, lol.

    1. You can do it! I love aprons because they are hard to screw up. haha
