handmade holidays - progress update 2

the fleur de lys for sage's knight tunic.

sage's gifts are just about done. i'm still waiting for a shield but i've sewn all i can for him at this point. jaden happily modeled for me.

the knight's chain mail hood. tabitha graciously drew the pattern up for me and i enlarged it and cut it out on architectural trash paper. i used a t-shirt i bought at the thrift shop just for this purpose. the hem became the hem of the hood.

side view of the hood. jaden loves to draw on her face with markers so notice the lovely designs on her face.

i'm very pleased with how it turned out!

in between trying to work out jaden's doctor's kit gift, i found some cute ideas for stocking stuffers.

a turtle and frog (i have an idea for a frog pattern in my head) for sage

an owl bookmark for nina

mermaids for jaden

so much fun! i also got my step-daughter's skirt finished. i made it a bit bigger than i thought necessary with the ability to make it larger still or smaller depending on how it fits her. i'm still waiting on the shirt pattern to arrive so i can sew it.

i also found ideas for the equinox for jaden and sage.

That's a great gift for a little boy. I bet he wears it as a regular daily hat in the cold weather.

Your talent never ceases to amaze me! I also love the idea of marking the moon phases with cookies! :)
