Handmade Holiday Ideas // Favorite Things

Holiday Patchwork

I decided this was the year to make my family a holiday patchwork quilt! I’m happy to say that I finished piecing the throw size quilt a few weeks ago… and there it has sat.  But hey, progress is progress! I started with three Cherry Christmas charm packs (by Aneela Hoey for Moda), and then added in some of my favorite prints.

Handmade Napkins

I’m also loving the last minute handmade gifts that are popping up! I made cloth napkins out of a ton of Laura Gunn’s prints, and the scale is just perfect! (I made 13”, 15”, and 18” napkins, based on the amount of fabric I had. I like the 15” ones best.) I’m not sure if I’m going to keep them or gift them, but either way I’ll be making more. And I have a giveaway in the New Year with some of her reprinted Poppy fabric!

Enjoy the links of beautiful handmade gifts, and enjoy the weekend!
