Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/

Rewriting my list entirely (it would have been a big mess to fix the original post)...

KEY:
Purchased (not crafted) and done
Need to be purchased (not crafted) still
Crafted and done
In progress / materials purchased

Mom: no sew fleece blanket

Stepdad: seasoned salts and salt bowls to put them in

Mom & Stepdad's pugs: squeaky toy

Dad: books

Stepmom: yarn bowl
(Actually half-crafted... I'm going to one of those paint-your-own-pottery places.)

Stepsister: gift card and earrings

Stepbrother: bacon-print pillows (from Etsy)

Grandfather: books

Grandmother: no sew fleece blanket

Aunt: no sew fleece blanket

Uncle: sriracha salt and grow-your-own ghost pepper

Fiance: TOP SECRET BOUGHT ITEM plus stocking stuffers (mostly bought: jerky, Pocky, various candies...)

Fiance's mom: (he's making her a corn hole board) corn hole bean bags
(Would have been crafted, but she wanted regulation approved, so I bought instead.)

Fiance's dad: beer

Fiance's sister: wine

Fiance's brother S: beer

Fiance's brother B and B's wife: still unknown

Fiance's nephew: whatever is left on his wishlist when I ask Fiance's mom!!!

Friends: hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, mini candy canes, and mini liquor bottles (as seen here: http://pbinvb.blogspot.com/2012/12/neighbor-gifts.html) (leftovers went to the neighbors)

A lot more purchased gifts than I wanted to do this year, but I recently moved, plus I work three jobs seven days a week, so things just didn't come together in a way that allowed me to craft more gifts without losing my mind entirely. I plan to learn how to crochet really well next year, so I can make scarves for anyone I can't come up with something else for!!!

I finished my sister's fingerless gloves yesterday! This evening I've completed about 2" on the second sock for my cousin, and now I'm about to go get out the sewing machine to work on my dad's windsock.

OMG indigo_roses you have the SAME EXACT computer I do... I saw the photo and I was like "when did I get those? I don't have fingerless gloves in that color!!! And for that matter, when did I upload this photo?" They look fantastic!
