Christmas in July (2)

I finally had a chance to get the pictures together of a few more things my mom and I have made for Christmas in July. Since I love coffee and really don't like to waste the cardboard cup sleeves, we made some Christmas cup sleeves.

My mom made these adorable beaded Christmas trees and appliqued them to the red cozy. Festive, right? (It feels a little strange to be festive one day and at the beach that same afternoon, but it's made it easier for me to read Christmas books to my little girl who likes them all year long.)

Christmas Potholders

We also made some Christmas potholder sets from a vintage pattern my mom has in an old crochet pattern book. I love the red, white, and festive variegated colors of this set.

We also made one with Christmas crocheted Christmas trees stitched onto the white potholders. Aren't they cute! I'll be making quite a few of these to hopefully sell at a couple holiday fayres and fetes. And I'm sure we'll come up with even more festive crochet items. 

If you would like any of these, you can find them in my Etsy shop, Sunshine Makings
