Because I was so busy writing my thesis and traveling for my thesis defense this fall, I didn't quite have the time to make as many Christmas presents this year as I did last year, but I did manage to find time for a few. Thanks to pinterest for helping me gather these ideas. :)
I made a couple cute bags for my sister-in-law Emily. She is pretty much my favorite person to sew for (except possibly for Jamie) because she has really fun taste and I love picking out fabrics I think she'll like (I only hope I'm right!). I made her this boxy pouch (tutorial found here):
And this reversible bag (tutorial found here). This one was extremely simple to make! Next time I'd probably figure out a way to add some kind of clasp or tie.
Since she is currently teaching in Korea and was unable to be home for Christmas, I also made a Christmas stocking to send in her package (tutorial found here).
When Emily left for Korea, I made her a travel organizer (featured in this post, tutorial found here), and my mother-in-law loved it, so this year I made one for her as well! I love this combination of fabrics. This time I added some interfacing to give it a little more structure.
I also made a couple of gifts for Jamie: a hooded towel (which I apparently don't have a picture of) and this apron (tutorial here):
