My Hand Made Christmas Gifts

I finished most of my gifts very early this year. With the exception of a scarf and the rabbit I had all of my gifts done by the beginning of September. I have been hoarding these pictures... many of which I just realized were HORRIBLE. So I have a few photos to share...

I made this for my sister, Debbie. 

These are the hat and scarf I made for my nephew, Nathaniel. 

I made a matching set for my other nephew, Taylor.

I made this cowl for my little sister, Tesla... it will look great with her red hair!

I made the rabbit for my little brother, Jacob and the bear for my older brother, Buddy. 

I made these for Buddy's new baby. They didn't find out the gender of the baby and he/she is due Jan 1. I have nicknamed this baby... Baby Doe.

These weren't all the gifts I made, I also made a scarf for my stepmom, a hat and scarf set for my nephew (Xander), a hat for my nephew (Colton), a hat and a turtle for my sister in law, a scarf for my brother, a snowman for my mother in law and a blanket for Jeff.

I am now working on a special project my sister and I are doing together and a blanket for next years "Be a Santa for a Senior". I have purchased enough yarn to make 2 more blankets for that charity and a blanket for my sister. I am trying to keep busy!

I had a great Christmas. My MIL got me a yarn organizer, some storage bowls and some jewelry. My dad sent me some home made banana bread. Jeff bought me some clothing, a new computer (will be here in a week or more), new boots and $35.00 in YARN! My mom is flying me home in August for my sister's wedding. 


  1. I'm so excited for you to come home in May. I am even more excited for you to come home for my wedding because that visit IS all about ME lol and I get to have you all to my self the night before the wedding. You and me watching movies, munching on healthy snacks(no junk food before the wedding), and spending much needed QUALITY twin time together!

  2. Sarah, what wonderful gifts you made for everyone and it sounds like you've done quite well in the gift department too! Wishing you a very Happy New Year!

  3. Great projects! I just found you through Paula's blog, and I'm a new follower. I can't wait to see what other projects you post. =)
