With African Flair!

Youngest Farmers' Daughter spent this last summer
working on a Ph.D. project in Cameroon, Africa!
She brought me back some lovely pieces of fabric and
I just had to share one with you!
This is our favorite ! It has chickens on it!
(I am a farmgirl afterall!)

I wanted to thank DD by making something with the fabric
so I found a pattern for a little bag that we both liked.

Here is how it turned out!



It was an easy, fun and quick little pattern
that I will sew again!
And, if anyone is interested, I may sew one up
for a little giveaway soon!
You can find the pattern here!

Kritter Kabins

These 'Kritter Kabins' are one of the gifts I made for my
sweet little granddaughters for Christmas!
They are made from a 1980's McCall's pattern
that I had made for my youngest daughter when
she was small.

Setting in the windows and shutters.

Window boxes with flowers


Putting them all together

Miss Morgan's Blue Mouse House
(The Mouse Family is yet to move in!)

Raegan's Pink Rabbit House
(because pink is her favorite color!)

(I need to get busy and finish the Kritters!
Mr. Rabbit is lonely without his family
and the Mouse House can't wait empty for too long!)
Finished Kritter Kabins!

I have been trying to give handmade gifts
at Christmas each year.
Do you make homemade gifts?
