Christmas Sewing At Our Little Hilton

I have 5 special girls in my mind for these hair twisties for Christmas!
I don't really care if they see them on here because I am devoting this year to
sewing them some special things.  See this black towel.  I purchased it a long time ago
and I love it.  You twist it up around her wet hair and it dries it so quick.

So I went and purchased some terry cloth to make some for Christmas presents.
Since I don't shop, I am way ahead on my Christmas list thanks to Allie!!

We were at the Hilton (aka hunting cabin) so I got my little featherweight out
and made a pattern and started sewing.

I love to sew when "sweet hunter" is out turkey hunting.
I had so much fun!
I just love turkey hunting at the Hilton!

This is the first one I made.

I even added the loop to hang it up with but I got so excited sewing these up
that I forgot to add the loop to the others but thats ok.

I think it turned out pretty good!!!

And now there are 5!!!!

Then I saw all the scraps that I had laying there and I got to thinking.

Another light bulb moment??

So I sewed up a few make-up remover cloths from the scraps.
 So here they are ready for Christmas presents!
I am linking up with Allie with her Christmas Through The Year!
I am also linking up with Peg & Kris with the One Project A Month (OPAM)!!
March: 23 Projects completed!
Thanks for the encouragement!!!!

Today I am thankful for........time to sew!

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Ecclesiastes 9:10

O VAl!
I know you have to feel so tickled.I am so happy for you.It makes you feel a little bit like a "secret service person" who is sneaking along and when Christmas is upon us once again - you will not have to fight those last minute crowds. Doesn't that sound good? :-)

Susannah said... sister was just telling me about the one she has and she loves it. What a great idea! The girls are going to love them. The make up removers are neat, too! Who can't use those? Pink is such a soothing color for these type of things. Good job! What's next?


Val said...

What a clever idea and I love the way you have used the scraps for something useful :)

BubzRugz said...

Great idea - I love gifts that are useful...

Connie said...

I like your light bulb ideal, and the towels. Happy sewing!

Needled Mom said...

Great idea, Val. I am sure they will be appreciated. You will be all ready for Christmas when we are all in a fog.

I love that verse! I used to tell the girls at the mission that one daily. A good reminder that whatever we are doing do it as unto the Lord.....I love the Hair twisties. My daughters always love those things after showers...tug your hair and go get ready! You are good! Christmas in March....Boy! I am way behind! BLessings!

Such a great gift idea...and wow you are way ahead of the game.

Angela said...

Val, Love the hair twisties. I use one every time I wash my hair. I am sure those recieving the gifts will love them as well. The make up removers was a great idea. Such a good feeling to get to mark something off our list? Have a blessed day.

Allie said...

I LOVE THESE! Val, you have to model one to show me how it works. I need to make one! Or should I say, AT LEAST one!

Alice Grace said...

Very good! I know they will love those!

Loralynn said...

Awesome gifts and I love the clever use of the scraps too!

Midlife Mom said...

What a great idea! I hate using a great big thick towel for my hair every day, it sure adds to the laundry! The little make up removers are great too, just the right size.

I know how you feel about the quiet and the chance to just do what you want or do nothing. That's how I feel at the lake in the fall and winter. Of course the summer is filled with company and nonstop activity and I love that too. I need to get a little sewing machine to keep at the lake.

I have that exact crock pot! ha! Have had it for a long time!!!

Darla said...

Get out of here! You are so smart and way ahead of the game.

Mickie said...

These are great gifts for your nieces, i know they will love them! The make up removers are an awesome way to use up scraps! Well done!

Cheryl said...

The girls are going to love them...great gift!
