    For christmas? besides the massive amount of mittens, my favorite project is a star nosed mole for my wildlife professor, who has been a mentor for me for a while, and I found an amazing pattern online. :)

    So cute! I love the wallet and I love Amy Butler!

    I’m planning on making some apron’s, journal covers and zippered pouches (If I can get over the fear of doing a zipper. I’ve still never done one before) for Christmas gifts.

  6. susan 10.06.2009 at 6:55 pm #

    I’m making a four seasons table topper for some gifts, and some wristlets – they’d be great paired with one of your wallets!

    I love the fabric.

On the list is aprons, coasters, water bottle holders, some dog water bowls just to name a few. Now I have another thanks to your tutorial. My daughter and her friends will love it!! Thank you! I will definately follow your blog to see what you come up with next.

    Hey Anna! I’m a follower (your first, I may add) AND I put a post on my blog too.
    This Christmas, my craft of choice will probably be our family newsletter and maybe I’ll sew some hooded towels for upcoming baby showers.

  13. Amy 10.07.2009 at 1:51 am #

    I LOVE Amy Butler Fabrics! My good friend Dahlia steered me in your direction on her blog and she is SO right. I LOVE this wallet. Perfect.

    I’ll be sure to add myself as a follower. As for projects this Christmas… I haven’t even thought about it yet. But seeing as I have a new baby girl after 3 boys I’ll probably be making some bows and some beaded bracelets. And probably some sort of stocking.

  14. Diva Quilts 10.07.2009 at 8:05 am #

    Here via Pink Chalk Studio, but will stick around cuz your blog looks cute! :)

    I’m working on an advent swap and a mini-quilt swap for Christmas, but otherwise don’t plan to do anything “Christmas-y” in the way of quilting. I may however, make some handmade ornaments again.

    Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  15. pattynubs 10.07.2009 at 8:32 am #

    Cute wallet! I thankfully have a quilt for my parents already done for Christmas, but I’m planning on making a little checker set for my niece and nephew (and I’m sure some other things).

  18. silversmith 10.07.2009 at 9:05 am #

    ooh – the wallet is adorable and just the right size!

    this year for christmas, i have LOTS of projects going. a farm mini quilt for one set of inlaws, a quilted table runner for my other MIL, i finished a scarf for my sis-inlaw, i’m still knitting a sweater for my newest nephew. i plan on making a teepee for my kiddo, but we’ll see… and i’m knitting a baby blanket for my best friend’s baby-to-be.

  19. Nichole 10.07.2009 at 9:07 am #

    I’m currently in the middle of working on a quilt for my Mum for Christmas. It seems to be going well. I know I have more things to make for Christmas, but I haven’t thought that far ahead yet!

    You know, you are really making me think. I haven’t given it any thought yet. Last year my children each received a handmade gift. This year….? Maybe I’ll make something for my husband this time. A sweatshirt?

  32. The Sewing Dork 10.07.2009 at 2:05 pm #

    For Christmas I am making everyone something in an eco-friendly theme (reusable bags, no-paper towels, etc.). In order to force myself to get the stuff made, I blog about it regularly.

    Ah, Christmas – I admit I haven’t thought that far yet but now that you’ve brought it to mind, I’m thinking about some crayon rolls and some totes. I’m kinda scared of zippers still..hehe.

  78. Ariane 10.08.2009 at 1:51 pm #

    I’m giving myself a break: no crafts for Christmas! I spent six months knitting a laceweight shawl for my mom and I’m itching to tackle some other projects.

    Although some people may be getting cloth grocery bags as gifts if my next project goes well…

  79. Allie 10.08.2009 at 2:11 pm #
