Christmas Crafting

Now that Christmas is over, I can share the things I made:

I made this Amy Butler short pleated apron for my MIL. Originally I wanted to have the floral and stripe reversed, but I was about 2" short on the floral, and didn't want to shorten it. I'm still happy with how it turned out.

These are lounge pants for my BIL, an Arizona Cardinals fan. I used Butterick 4358.

Another Amy Butler apron, this one for my SIL, Julie.

Pyjama pants for Julie, made from flannel (isn't this a great print?). I used McCalls 3019, and shortened the crotch 2" after comparing the pattern to a pair of RTW jammie bottoms I already have. I gave her a RTW black long sleeve tee to match.

I added the mock fly by extending the CF about 1.5", and eyeballing a fly shape. :) real technical, I know.

Lastly, a cross stitch embroidery from the book Subversive Cross Stitch. When I saw this in the book I knew I had to stitch this for my friend Beth. It was very fast to do, and later this week we'll go and get it framed.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I love my pj pants and new apron. Hey - I just remembered that you were going to make boxers for Peter, no?

yeah, boxers were supposed to be made for him, but i didn't get to them (or the rest of calvin's). maybe for epiphany. :)
