    I have been making some Christmas gifts lately. Three quilts for my Dad and 2 brothers, Hoito beach bags and matching flip flops for my girls ( putting new beach towels and sun screen in the bags along with the flip flops. Snap sacks and new pot holders for Mom. Anyone else working on Christmas presents.

    I'm working on a Sunbonnet Sue for my MIL and a table runner for my mom for her birthday in Sept. Fabric is in the washer right now. Still looking for a quick Christmas project for my 4H girls.

    No, something for them to make so it has to be easy but something they are interested in also. Not sure what a snap bag is. Have to look it up.

    I'm doing quilts for a few family members this year, one is 3/4 quilted right now. The others I haven't started yet. I'm making one for my husband right now, sewing the binding on at the moment. LOL I better get cracking on the ones for the rest of the family. I'm sticking with simple patterns, don't want to get overwhelmed.

    You can see the pattern here. They are called snap happy sacks. I think the girls would love them and they are pretty easy to make

    Right now I am working on county fair entries, samples for my crochet classes and crazy patch sweatshirt jacket classes, and items for our fall craft show. Usually whatever is left after the craft show becomes Christmas presents. LOL It's not recycled yet, repurposed maybe? LOL

    Thanks for the link. They are cute and a good idea. I usually look for free patterns but I like them. Thanks.
