other things I'm into now

So my girlfriend suggested being crafty for Christmas. She wants to make tea towel totes (or this, this or this). And that has inspired me to google thousands and thousands of sewing templates and tutorials online. I can hardly get any work done. It's ridiculous. I am so excited for this. She's going to buy some retro tea towels or curtains or something at Value Village for us to use. But then again we might go buy fabric if we're going to be awesome at making them. So excited. I also want to sew something for my friend who's having a baby in January (like a baby blanket or something). And I want to sew oven mitts and an apron for MIL for Christmas and make a jean quilt for my hubby. SO excited for the sewing with free patterns.

Do any of you sew? Is it worth me talking about on here or do you have any good patterns or do you have other things you sew or want to craft for Christmas presents?

I worked in an embroidery factory for 2 years (random). . . but the last thing I made was pillows probably 6 years ago!

Those are so cute! You absolutely have to make some and take pictures!

I wish I sewed. Maybe I'll start someday.
