Too Early For Christmas?

Christmas gifts

Is it too early?

I hope not because this is my second post on presents with that homemade touch.

Today I am sharing the three wristlets I made for my niece and my brother's girlfriends' two girls.

I started with these wristlets I got at SCORED at Goodwill for 50 cents a pop! Paired with my trusty yo-yo maker by Clover and some scrappy fabric (recognize the blue crepe back satin from little man's Halloween costume?) I know that these wristlets originally came from JoAnn's because of the labeling.

I made 2-3 yo yo's for each bag and used the Scribbles fabric paint. I stole borrowed two wooden blocks from the little man for the letters. I used a paintbrush to apply the paint on the block as well as painting on my designs. I really stink at hand painting and was pretty much holding my breath the whole time.

What?? Too much Christmas up in your face with the colors above? LOL Well get ready Black Friday is right around the corner and all the stores are playing the music already.


  1. Adorable! I love them! It is never too early for Christmas.

    1. Thanks Leslie! Unfortunately (or not) my sewing room AKA the dining room needs cleaned out for thanksgiving so not much sewing will be getting done this weekend.
