The other sewing project I made this year were explorer vest for my nephews and Judah, another pattern from Little Things to sew.
The best part about this year's Christmas sewing: I didn't buy ANYTHING. I used up a lot of cute fabrics from my stash, especially from my stash of boy fabrics. I was really tempted to go to Joann's several times, but realized that I really had plenty already for these projects. The buttons are all from my big button box I bought on ebay a long time ago, and I made my own bias tape from other fabric in the stash. (I sort of hate making bias tape because it involves lot of ironing and cutting, my two least-favorite sewing activities, but I now have enough cute bias tape to last a while. If anyone cares, here is my favorite bias tape tutorial.)
Although this is a great boy project, I also love that with some girly fabric it could be great for girls who like to play outside and explore, too.
