Christmas through the Year!!!

Fa-la-la-la-la!  It's that time of the month, Allie's Christmas Through the Year is still stacking up Christmas presents for the winter holiday! 

I've actually completed a number of things which is surprising considering that my mom was back in the hospital, my husband has been going back and forth to South America and the dogs and just about everything else is on my shoulders.

Here at 3 P and N, the focus has been on the Holiday Craft Bazaar coming up in October.  I'm also on a mission to use up scraps.  So here we have matroyshkas and ladybug baby toys:

Bibs, we have a new wave of babies coming in the family and this is a great way to use up some of the leftover pieces of novelty fabric I have:

 More strawberry purses, I can't seem to keep these around, people are always interested in them:
And crafts for the kids to make gifts too!  Below are simple little wall hangings that the kids can make artwork on (with fabric markers).  I hope to have a whole table dedicated to just kid crafts and my son has already offered to help me at the bazaar.  I'm about half done with the amount I hoped to do and this is a GREAT way to use up scraps:

You might remember Katie and Natalie experimented with this idea back in June:
At their request, we made pillows but we are going to do wall hangings for the kids because it will be easier for them.  I hope to get some coasters done too!  It will be a good way to use up small pieces of batting.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas in July!
