Handmade Christmas: Stockings

I just love the look of handmade stockings.  I decided to make my young nieces stockings for Christmas and fill them up with goodies.  So far, I made only one.  I have three more to go. I also made it extra large to fit more items.

Christmas gifts: Secret Santa

A simple gift idea for teachers, classmates or your secret santa is this cute snowman popcorn cover.  I made it quickly in about 15 minutes.  I found the idea and tutorial at www.craftomaniac.blogspot.com .
I gave it to my daughter to give to her Secret Santa from her water polo team.

I used a dark chocolate kiss for a button on his hat.

Christmas Gift Countdown

I made this Christmas Apron for my niece that was visiting from Texas.  I gave it to her already since she was returning back to Texas.  It was my first apron I ever made and the easiest to sew.  Check-out the directions for this apron and www.thediydish.com
