I really didn't make the time for a lot of handmade gifts this holiday season. I gave out some solid perfume and custom scented soaps, and of course I HAD to make the time to stitch up a little piggie ornament for Elsie's birthday (it's a birthday tradition- I make her an ornament every year). One giftie I was really proud of was this ornament I made for my dear friend, Chris. I tried a different sort of technique and was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I mean, not to pat myself on the back (pat, pat, pat), but IT LOOKS JUST LIKE HIM. I used my sewing machine to "draw" the lines of his beard, hair, and eyebrows, which is something I hadn't tried much. Anyway, making people is a lot of fun. I may need to do a tutorial for it next year.
Well, we're gearing up for a big New Years Eve show tonight, so it's time to brush up on songs and get myself ready. Happy last day of 2014! I hope you have an amazing night!
