Christmas Gifts!

This year, we decided to do 100% homemade gifts (all but Santa's) I am learning about patterns and having so much fun.. mostly I like to change patterns or make my own but here are a few of the presents I have done. When I started, I started making blankets for everyone. I got bored fast and had to move on!
These are in order of what I have done.. learning as I go... These blankets I made before the longies, though.
(Caden's..just learning the SC! covers his crib)



















Tommy's (covers his twin bed)


















We have a tradition in our house, every Christmas eve we let the boys unwrap one presents.. always PJ's. This year, I decided to MAKE our jammies. Here are Caden's wool longies... I still need to make a shirt and slippers to match.























I made these fish from Susie's pattern. They are color counting fish. I decided to play a lil using different textured yarns, different sized hooks.. I still need to make a bag for them.


















One of Ty's hats (still need to make him one using his school colors with a basketball on top!)


















Hat and scarf for Tommy.. he wants MANY hats so this is only a start!
























Nieces hats, scarfs, and purses: ( I am planning on putting those heart crayons we made in the purses!)

Caden, modeling his cousin's hat!






















































































Nephews hats and scarfs: (I need to make some lil drawstring bags for the boy's star crayons)
Chicago Bears colors (scarf and two hats)























Chicago Bulls colors (scarf and basketball hat)
