Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Holiday or Festivus, I’m sure many presents were exchanged, much sugar was consumed, and tackiness abounded. At least, that’s how it is in my world! I got out my ugly Christmas dress from last year and sewed sewed sewed! I made this new dress:
I also made some felt house hoops inspired by the artistic genius of Checkout Girl (pictures to come!) and a nerdy hoop for my Star Trek-loving lady friend:
My brother got the pink bunny pajamas from A Christmas Story. You know, the one where the kid shoots his eye out?
And for Mr. C, I did something a little different! Instead of sewing, I painted. I ordered a set of blank Russian nesting dolls, or “matryoshkas,” from this site and painted them like Serenity and her crew from Firefly! He was stunned. At first, he thought I bought them already painted like that, but when I told him otherwise, his jaw dropped.
My favourite is little Jayne.
However, Mr. C had to one-up me by hand sewing me a bouquet of Mario flowers. Most guys just buy them from the florist. And most bouquets don’t have piranha plants!
The work that went into these is unreal. I think Mr. C will have to post a tutorial, because he made the patterns all on his own! I just love them. They are in a place of pride above our Wii.
Here’s hoping everyone had a magical holiday (even though it probably wasn’t as awesome as ours).
