They need to come up with a name for spending the Friday after Thanksgiving sitting at home working on handmade presents. "DIY Friday"? "You don't really need it, even if it is on super sale, so sleep in and spend a leisurely day knitting Friday"? Whatever it's called, I was able to spend a good part of it inside snuggled up with my sewing basket finishing these two nutcracker dolls from Alicia's new book, Stitched in Time. They are presents for two new babies on my list and I think they just turned out so cute and I love them. Thanks Alicia!
If you're making presents this year definitely check out Alicia's book. It has lots of really cute gift ideas. Actually, just lots of cute all around! I've been tapping my fingers since I pre-ordered my copy this Summer and I'm so happy to have it in my hands. The cover alone is enough for me, but to have a whole 160 pages of Alicia at my fingertips is simply wonderful!
