What the Elves Made

Our Christmas gift-opening is over, and now I can share what the elves and I have been working on in the studio!

I made a faux Persian Lamb jacket for my daughter; I used CLD Anything But Ordinary, lengthened, zippered and lined, and a Purple fabric from Emma One Sock.

                                      The buttons on the collar are vintage carved mother-of-pearl which belonged to my mother.

I made a plaid shirt for my husband, using McCalls 4079 and a poly/rayon twill from my local store.
 I also made a cardi from Marcy Tilton's V8430 for a friend; I used a remnant of Leopard-Printed Ponte knit from EOS.

  And here I am in a lovely merino/cashmere turtleneck, a gift from my husband;
 I hope your holidays were bright and happy!


  1. Merry Christmas Margy !

    You're a kind and generous lady. Thank you for all the inspiration you've given those of us who know you from your creations. I'm sure your family appreciates these lovely gifts from the heart.
