"Little Bean" Bag and other Christmas Goodies

Remember the bag I made?  The Grandview Bag (link here)?  Well, Layla was so excited about it that I made her a miniature version for a last minute Christmas present.  I think she's gonna love it!

Mammy and Me matching bags

 I just had to make her one of those crayon rolls too.  There are tutorials everywhere for these, but I used the one here at Chocolate on My Cranium.  I did change the height to 7" instead of 5" just felt a little more substantial to me that way.

Loving this Michael Miller bird fabric!

I must be stopped!  I saw these felt cupcakes in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and just had to try to make some.

Although admittedly not as cute, these literally cost pennies to make:

My version

 I used the tutorial here at Sew Hip Mama for the basic construction. 

And finally, something that is NOT for Little Bean (if you can believe it)...aprons!  I made a few of these and already sent them off, but here is the last one standing.  These are so cute and a cinch to make.  Here is the tutorial from Stop Staring and Start Sewing.  Here's hoping none of the recipients read this blog!

What gifts did you make for the holidays?


  1. I LOVE the apron!!! And the cupcakes and little bean's purse and...everything that you make. You are so very talented. :-)

  2. You did a beautiful job on the apron!! I love seeing this (I'll bet the recipients did too)!
