Christmas gifts

I really didn't get to crazy on the handmade front this year. Gregg was gone a bit in November and December so it was nice to not also have to worry about making gifts. I put together a few calendars for the grandparents and made my mom a mixer cover. I didn't get a picture before I sent it although I could take a picture of the one I made for myself (Merry Christmas to me!) The girls did a get a few things...

Lills got a superhero outfit! To be honest she didn't seem that impressed with it on Christmas. I kinda suggested she wear it for these pictures and then it came right off and stayed off. And then just last week as cute as can be is my girl giggling in the hallway in her superhero outfit and she added her cape (crazy how I used the same colors, I forgot about the red on the cape).

Pattern: McCall's 5727
Fabric: a red crushed panne for the top, aqua sequin for the skirt, and a silver metallic for the belt

I made Jane a mooshy belly bunny (tutorial here) and Santa brought her a sock monkey (made like this one). Both pretty good at taking a good chewing session from her.
