Decorating the Christmas Tree

I posted a while back about some homemade Christmas gifts I would like to make. I really haven't had a lot of time to work on any gifts. Here is the first thing I decided to make. We are decorating our Christmas tree at home and thought the girls would enjoy decorating this little tree over and over. I followed the pattern found here.

Then, I thought it would be nice to have something to store it in, so I made a fabric envelope. I used the tutorial found here, I just adapted it so I could work with the things I had.

Homemade Christmas Idea List

There are many things I am thinking about for Christmas this year. Every year I decide I would like to make some of the gifts I give. I bookmark each site I find with a gift idea I like. It can be difficult wading through all the bookmarks. So, I decided this year, I would post an list on my blog, where I can look at all my ideas at anytime and from any computer.
