Christmas gifts I've made

The lounging pants are for my daughter (made from my sheets stash). Hope she likes them. Made from Simplicity 7092. Takes an hour, just like the pattern states.The rest is for Ruby and Layla. The capes and dresses were from Butterick pattern 4680. Embroidered their initials from Designs By Sick. I bought a membership last year and downloaded lots of great designs. The membership price went up, but still not bad. I also had to buy "The amazing box" in order to transfer to my machine. I bought it 2 years ago and it was $150. The results are wonderful. There are a lot of sites with free designs (Ann the Gran is great). I've used it many times.
The dotted swiss and fleece are from my stash. I had to buy the ribbon, 1 zipper and lining for the dresses. I still have 3 yards left of that material.

I love, LOVE dotted swiss. So very pretty.

I wanted the Amazing Box, but my husband bought me that Brother Ped-basic thing. I have barely used it. I find it limiting. (I think that was like $100-120.)

Those dresses look so cute! Well done.

Those little capelets look like they're straight out of the 1940s-- adorable!
