    How about the re-usable shopping bags? I love those!! Seems like more and more people are using them too.
    Tote bags are always a hit. Aprons? I'm making a manly apron for Hubby when he BBQ's. Pillow cases are fun.

    For years I've been hunting a pattern for a truly elegant
    Victorian Boot that is actually a Christmas Stocking.
    I saw a picture of it somewhere, in a book or online, and
    made a mental not to copy it, then of course lost it.
    It was a perfect boot shape down to the actual laces on it,
    with quilted with a lovely golden thread on the boot decorations.
    If anyone has this, please share with us. I'm sure that the talented people on this forum will be able to come up with something or other near to my dream.

    Ramona - I remember seeing that once upon a time too! Hope someone finds the pattern. I don't have time right now to design my own...and probably won't till after Christmas, if then.

    I got a kit from Connecting Threads for a quilted Christmas Card holder (wall hanging). I bought it for the pattern and will choose my own fabrics once I make the kit. As I type I'm working on it.
