Handmade Christmas

I am having so much fun sewing for "myself" even though its for my kids! I am getting to do some personal projects I haven't had time for in a while. I love how busy I am with my Etsy shop, but it nice to have a break and do something different :)

I decided to make some accessories for my girls baby dolls for Christmas. 

It started with some baby doll diapers

Then I wanted to add some bibs and burp cloths to match :)

Finally I finished up with a satin ruffle trim blanket and pillow for baby doll crib! This one took some time :-/ probably won't make one of these again, unless they beg me ;)

I made everything more purple and catered toward Aria because she tends to play with the dolls more often, but I know (hope) they both love what I made!

Chocolate peppermint popcorn

This was so easy and awesomely delicious! 

Pop your unflavored kernel popcorn in an air popper or over the stove! Melt some chocolate chips and crush some peppermint candy canes. Place the popped popcorn on a cookie sheet and drizzle with the melted chocolate, then sprinkle with the candy cane bits! Let cool (if you have self control, I do not ;) Break it up and put into baggies to enjoy!

No-Sew Tie-Fleece Blanket

Can't get enough of these tie-fleece blankets this year! 

So far I have made one of each for my girls, one for a friend and now the hubs has requested one too :) Anyone else?! Oh yeah maybe me ;) Haha

They are super easy to do, just a little time consuming! But worth the time :) they are so soft and cozy!  Makes for good multitasking while watching my dvr shows ;)

I used 1.5 yards for the girls with a pattern on one side and solid on the other.

For the adult size I would suggest 2.5-3 yards :)

The I just did a quick YouTube search for the easy step by step instructions (there are a bunch).
