Making a List

Hooded Toggle Vest

80 days until Christmas. Does this freak anyone else out? I’m hoping to give a lot of handmade this year — even more than last year — so I’ve started working on a few projects already. This vest is for my sister-in-law, the same one that was hinting for a handbag. She is super into her ugg boots so I thought she might like this vest. Plus she is a tiny little thing so she can get away with something bulky like this. One thing checked off the list. Up next, a sweater for Tristan.

    Now I understand! Fabulous vest. It wouldn’t do a thing for me, but I covet it nonetheless.

    p.s. 80 days? Really only 80 days? I don’t think I am going to make it, and my list is shorter than your’s for last year…

    She must be a tiny little thing if Katie can model her vest!

    gorgeous vest!! I was also freaking out about Christmas the other day. Its always hard to get my head around the feeling that its so close, yet so far away at this time of year. I made nothing homemade for gifts last year, but this year I’m re-committed to giving as many handmade gifts a go as I can.
