Finished Projects - Christmas Gifts

I made a few Christmas presents this year and some I am still working on here are some finished ones... I made this chinese takeout box purse for Lu...
Knitted this Koolhaus Hat for Matthew...the black doesn't really show the pattern unless you see it in person...its really cool...I'm working on two more colors so I will post those hopefully soon!
Finished finally this Weekend Travel Bag for my mom...I picked out the fabric 2 years ago...made one for Paula, and now this one and sorry folks I am throwing away the pattern...It's too difficult for my sewing skills and desires...right now I want quick projects that look great when finished...and although this looks great, and so did Paula's, its too difficult, and I don't find it gratifying at all! So its not a winner for me...though most Amy Butler patterns are great for me!
I made this bag for Paula, I got the pattern from a tutorial on Tiny Happy which I found through Sew Mama Sew's Handmade Holidays...I loved this bag so much I almost didn't want to gift it...but I did I think I will make myself one...I hardly ever make stuff for myself!
Okay...thats it for now!

Beautiful gifts!! I just received a knitted scarf as a present from a friend, and it made me think about how much I love handmade things. Your family is very fortunate to have you! ;)

Wow! Those look awesome!! I wouldn't even know where to start to make something like that! I have to get out my sewing machine manuel just to figure out how to patch a pair of pants! lol!
