I'm celebrating a bit, as I have finally finished stitching up the last of the birthday gifts for the younger members of my extended family. Whew. Once again, I drafted up a design of my own. Makes the sewing extra fun, but of course it also takes longer than just using a pre-made pattern. Good news is, that the prototypes are behind me and it came together better than I had hoped. Yay!
As excited as I am with this finish, I've learned my lesson about sharing things on my blog BEFORE the recipient receives them. Instead of a full reveal, I can share that I had a theme for this gift.

(can't rightly remember- I've had it so long now, I believe it's old enough to vote. ;o)
I even made a little label for this gift (which includes his name... just in case someone else tries to lay claim to his gift - because it is pretty cool ;o)
Maybe you can guess what I've made? :o)
I think he's going to love it
and I've already had requests on the home front (hubby has given it his 2 thumbs up rating ;o) to turn this into a pattern. I have some serious pattern writing to get on with - the list is continually growing... anyone have a magic wand I can borrow to speed up the process? ;o)
