Insulated Casserole Carrier
Made this for my sister-in-law, from the tutorials here and here. It was the largest of all my projects, but I think it turned out really well. The first project on my list for my new sewing machine is making one of these for myself!
Reusable Coffee Cup Sleeve
Made from the tutorials here and here. I put it around a Starbucks cup and put a Starbucks gift card inside the cup and gave it away at a family gift exchange. This is another thing that I'd like to make for myself! And the great thing about it is that it's a great scrap buster, because it doesn't require much fabric. The fabric on the inside was leftover corduroy from the jumper I made for Annika.

All natural lip balm
Using this recipe, a good friend and I got together one afternoon in December and made homemade lip balm (which was sort of a gift in itself, just spending the time together). :) I gave these cute little tins out to some friends and family.
So there you have it! That's what kept me busy in December. I had a lot of fun making everything, and hopefully the effort was well-received. Now to start planning for next year..... ;)
