I know, I know, Christmas already? Yes! I saw this Christmas tree skirt tutorial maybe a month ago and knew I had to make one for myself. Remember this pile of fabrics at the bottom of the post? It’s Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden. I love that it’s not the traditional Christmas colors. I bought 1 1/2 yard cuts of four prints and I’ll have enough to make stockings, maybe some dish towels, some potholders, ooo I can’t wait. Don’t worry, I also have a couple Halloween goodies to show, but that’ll have to wait for another day – just have some finishing touches!

Congratulations on winning the wallet and ponytail holders Mary! I sent you an email, can’t wait to hear from you!
A huge thanks to everyone for entering, I really loved reading all your comments. Some great Christmas gift ideas out there. Please stop by once in a while and see what I’ll be up to next! Be sure to check out the wallet tutorial and make one (or a bunch!).
I’d been dreaming up this idea in my head for a while after buying these cute red pants for $1 at a rummage sale. I didn’t realize when I bought them that they didn’t have pockets in the back. I thought it looked kind of silly and came up with a quick fix. Hello Kitty pockets! Natalie is in love with pockets of course, what 3 year old isn’t? Since I grew up with Hello Kitty I couldn’t resist.
To make the pocket I traced a simple image of Hello Kitty to make the pattern. I used white linen (two layers) and lined the pocket with red fabric with tiny red hearts. I embroidered the face on the kitty and added the bow by using some ribbon. Then I stitched the whole thing on the pants, a little tricky, but not too bad.
