here are the new years presents i made for my family... i started way too late, so everything was made or finished in a hurry, but i'm glad with the results! :)
for my sister and sister-in-law i made crochet hats. i found a free pattern on ravelry. they are ridiculously easy to make but they look great, i love the texture stitch!
my brother received an ipad-cover. i wish i had an ipad so i could make another! so much fun to make, with the quilted pieces! i followed this tutorial by one shabby chick, but skipped the fold-over flap because i had no velcro... it would have been better with the flap, though. i might give it an upgrade and add some snap buttons when i'm at my brothers, so the ipad doesn't slip out.
for my mom and dad i made a clothespin bag, like mine but with a different hanger and other fabric. i bought the fabric in the provence two years ago, and finally had enough courage to cut it up for a sewing project, cause i know my mom would love it. and she did. :) i was actually planning on knitting some socks for my dad, but i can't knit socks for his huge feet in a week or less... shhh, don't tell him. ;)
