A few of the finished birthday presents...

because some are in the 1/2 finished phase...

There's just too much going on. I don't have time to complete everything.

But... here are the completed handmade gifts for William.

His favorite... the ninja costume! It's pattern McCall's 2941 and he originally wanted view E- but I somehow got away with just the regular ninja costume... although, he wouldn't let me applique a cutsy ninja to the front :( Daddy will be so proud. The fabric I used is some old, like stretch twill from Mom's stash.








and here's some photos of William and Dylan fighting- or being ninjas- or whatever you call it.







Then... here's the 2nd favorite thing- the jaguar stuffed animal. William is VERY into the big cats... he always has been. I made this one using the sewing for sarah jumbo quicky softies on Mom's big hoop- I love it- and some of this awesome minkie that she ordered from fabric.com.



Then there's the little ninja's- my favorite. The file is from Sewn for you designs. I am going to make some more of these for little party favors for his party on Sunday. I love them.



And here's a tooth pillow. William is not even close to having a loose tooth- but he want's to be prepared. He's been asking me for one ever since Jakey lost a tooth.
The file is from Shari Marie Creations. Though, my Mom bought it and I can't find it on the site....I love being able to use Mom's 6X10 hoop and designs! Yea! I didn't read the directions and I messed up a little bit... but eh.. it's fine. And I used glow in the dark thread for the tooth- which is really cool. W loves it!




And here's probably the coolest one I made- it's an in the hoop DS organizer. The file is from sewing for sarah. It's the second time I've made one of these- the first one DID NOT work. I used too much batting and I hated the vinyl on it. This time I used felt as the batting and omitted the vinyl. Viola! Much better! I love how it turned out!... now if only someone will buy me a (pink) ds..... :)



... the uncompleted projects are some eco friendly sandwich bags with napkins and some p.j's- all the pants are done... but not the matching shirts. Maybe by Monday. We'll see.... and I just remembered that I made William some puppets, too, and forgot to give them to him- or take a picture.... hmmmmmm

and maybe I'll post some pictures from his birthday party, too.

Yes, I do. I borrowed the money from my parents and then paid them back little by little. I love it!
