Chirstmas in March?

I never shared any of the presents I made for Christmas this last year.  What was I thinking?! 
I'm sure my dozens and dozens of readers have been anxiously awaiting this post for months

Well, let me begin with the Tea Wallets I made for my girl friends


The first person to correctly name all the teas in the picture gets a free tea wallet!

This tea wallet is "fussy cut" which means I cut the fabric so the pattern lined up exactly. I didn't do this to all the tea wallets I made but I felt the "twall" (or Toile) needed/deserved the "fussy cut."

Here's the Christmas ornament for my book club's ornament exchange

Super cute aprons (I wanted to keep) that I made for my Mom and Mother-in-Law

I made this for the family 
but really just for me because Adam and Bennett don't care that much


I made really, really cute aprons for my nieces but I only took pictures of the embroidery on the ties, opps!


This sweet little girl got an ice cream cone for Christmas

My Brother and Sister-in-Law got some (dare i say, awesome) coasters I decoupaged (well only 4 are decoupaged, the other 4 are actually really pretty and normal)



And then actually there were two "paying gigs" that came just after Christmas that I want to share too, bare with me! 

The first was for a nursing cover (not pictured) but I did use the scraps from said nursing cover to make an crinkle toy that matched.
The camping fabric she picked out was really cute and cheerful!

The second was a project Adam and I worked on together.
 Isn't it amazing?! I love it!

well, obviously there is Refresh and Earl Grey. Then i think the light blue is probably Berryblossom White (which is super yummy). the orange one is trickier, but i'm going to guess the Wild Sweet Orange (which, admittedly, i had to look up on the internet).

Oh! So close! But unfortunately the internet failed you! :)

I'm pretty sure Jesus most prefers a Young's Oatmeal Stout. . . He has good taste like that

Sarah Elwer said...

Nope, not chai or wild sweet orange!

Berry White, Refresh, Earl Grey, and either Awake or Joy, but I can't tell from the color on my computer.

Brandy said...

Obviously Refresh and Earl Grey, and I am going to guess African Red Bush and Berryblossom white??

Sarah Elwer said...

Oh Brandy, You are so close! :(

Brandy said...

This is probably illegal, but is the reddish one honeybush?????

Sarah Elwer said...

Brandy said...

Brandy said...
