Sew What! Holidays Reader Showcase!

Good morning good morning! determined to get stuff done today this is the first of two Sew What! Holidays posts today. This one is the readers showcase and this afternoon there will be a tutorial for the tool roll I made last week. :) Last week the challenge was to create a "Gift for Him" now, let us see what you came up with!
These gorgeous lunch bags were made by my partner in crime Cynthia, The Sewing Dork. The one on your left is for Mr. Dork. The two fabulous Ikea fabric bags are for her. So smart looking! If you would like to make your own fabric lunch bags visit this post at her blog for a tutorial.

Sew What Holiday 2010 - 2

MMm, this hand knit bamboo and wool scarf made by Angela pea of Keeping The faith looks so warm and cozy! I bet her son will love it. Although technically not sewn, it is still a gift handmade with love and totally counts for the Sew What! Holidays sew along. (Maybe next year we'll do a craft along?!) If you would like to knit one yourself you can visit her blog to get the how-to!

Amy Jane made these fabulous pj pants for her boyfriend. She says she is changing out the paw print drawstring but I love it!

Thanks so much for playing along everyone! For those of you that have not submitted projects yet, do not despair. The time time lines are not made of concrete. If you need some extra time take it! We'll show off your stuff the following week (Heck even month if need be!) So get back to those holiday outfits I want to see some sparkle!

For those of you who need a recap on the projects and how to submit them here you go:

Week one : A gift for him *bonus craft: holiday garland
Week two : A holiday Outfit

Week three: A stocking or toy or both!

Week four: An ornament for the tree

The challenges will still be posted a week prior to a showcase for each project on Sundays. And for those of you worried that this bit of Christmas sewing might interfere with your other holiday prep such as Halloween and Thanksgiving, there will be a two week intermission starting October twenty fourth (So everyone has a week prep time for Halloween) and ending November seventh (just in time for American Thanksgiving.)

Also, reader submissions will still be taken by:
  1. Comments with links to blog posts
  2. Emailed photos 
  3. Uploading them to share in the Flickr Sewing Dork Showcase group. It is super fun to browse through all the great ideas and submissions!
