Christmas is coming! In the coming weeks, I'll be sharing some of my homemade gifts, decorations and goodies. I like to make a lot of our gifts each year and I try to keep things fairly simple and frugal, as well.
The first handmade gift for this Christmas is a little girl's skirt with matching purse for our 6 year old niece. She's the princess of the family and loves ballet, dresses and all things pink, so when I saw this awesome princess/ballerina fabric, I knew I needed to make her a skirt!
After the skirt was completed, I couldn't stop myself from creating a matching purse. I tweaked this pouch pattern to make what I had in mind.
This gift was so much fun to sew and I'm pretty sure the Princess will approve!
Fabric: approximately $6.00, although I didn't use quite all of it.
Ribbon, button, elastic loop closure and lining fabric for purse were all from my stash.
About 2 hours of time for completing both projects.
What handmade gifts have you made or are planning to make for Christmas this year?
