handmade gifts - pencil case and apron

Along with all the Christmas preparations that have been happening around here, I also have been making a few Christmas gifts.  Using Pretty by Hand's pattern, I made a niece this round pencil case.  (I won this in a giveaway on a blog awhile back and it was fun to finally make it!)  This is such a cute pouch!  I think I'll have to make a few more once the holiday season is over and life slows down a bit!

For another little girl, I made this apron.
Hopefully she'll enjoy wearing it as she keeps busy in her little play kitchen or as she
helps her Mom make some cupcakes!  :)

I am loving the little ruffle at the bottom!
