CHRISTMAS STITCHING

I like to make homemade gifts for Christmas. It doesn't always work out, but this year I've done quite a few.

My youngest granddaughters will be receiving some new things for their American Girl dolls. The dolls will be all set for a slumber party with their new nighties, sleeping bags, pillows, and pets. These were made from a simple panel design.


They'll both be getting aprons for themselves and their dolls too, also made from panels.




My OH grandsons will be receiving these knit scarves. I love to do simple garter stitch on bamboo needles. So simple, so cozy!

My sister and I exchange small gifts. This year she and her husband will be receiving these microwave cooking bags, I made with the new Tatar Batting. One is for steaming tortillas, and the other is a potato bag, for microwaving baked potatoes, sweet potatoes, red potatoes, sweet corn, muffins, etc.

Pat, they are all adorable. Do you want your patterns back? I had fun making all the stuff for my grands, but you out did yourself. I didn't think all Melissas girls had the AG dolls.

Love the slumber party sets! Very cute - I'm sure the girls will love them!
I have knit a few scarves (last year for Christmas) with those bamboo needles! You did a lovely job on yours!

They are all darling. Some little girl is going to be very happy with all those cute doll clothes for her dolly!

Thanks for sharing, Carolyn
