Homemade ~~ Crafting!

I've really been bitten by the craft bug lately!  Well, more like sewing, but same difference!  I wanted to share with y'all what all I've been creating....

First, some curtains I made for my best friend!  I'd do anything in the world for this gal, and when she told me she was going to redecorate her room I told her I'd make some curtains if she'd like!  She was totally on board and this is what we came up with..they turned out beautifully if I don't say so myself!

After completing this project, I moved on to a new blanket for Makayla's bed.  I found some really cute owl fabric at Hobby Lobby and picked up some hot pink fleece at Walmart (because its cheaper there) for the backing.  I wanted something a little heavier than what she had on her bed already, with winter coming up and colder nights, I want my little snuggle bug to be nice and warm.  :-)  I even made her a coordinating pillow case cover after I was finished, to complete the look!
When I was making her blanket, I had to clear off the area next to my sewing maching to it (I have a habit of collecting fabric and then piling it up next to my machine!).  After getting it done, I went through the fabric and came across some I had forgotten I'd purchased to make me and my mom a couple of fall aprons!  So of course, I jumped right into it and got them done in a reasonable amount of time.
Did I ever tell y'all that I've made so many aprons over the years I could (probably) do it with my eyes closed? 

They turned out super cute!  Mine is the chevron print w/the coordinating turkey fabric pockets, and my mom's is the turkey printed one w/coordinating chevron pockets!
Have any of you done any crafting lately?
