    I made grocery bags. I should have taken pics but I didn't. I made them from home dec fabric from walmart and ordered the poly webbing from jhittle.com. I used a pattern called "Farmer's Market Tote Bag" from April Lane designs.

    I made a few Ipad stands. I think they are so cool. Pillowcases and crocheted cascading scarves, which everyone liked. I am interesting in this thread as I am already working on lap quilts for 2013 (started in 2012), and crocheted hangers.4 hangers done so far and it is not even 2013. Hope I can keep this pace up. I want to really use my embrodiery machine for towels. I got tons of ideas but not enough sewing time it seems. Oh and I want to make fabric Christmas pots and fill with candy. Oh I got so many ideas.....

    I made American Girl doll clothes for granddaughter, a set of placemats and napkins for daughter, a valor quilt for son-in-law who recently retired from Air Force, and knitted several Sashay froofy scarves. Someone asked me to make her five little wallets to put gift cards in, but she never came for them, so I've been giving them to visiting relatives.

    I recently got the cutest pattern to make these little baskets. Probably could have figured it out on my own but it was priced fairly and was a quilt shop's original pattern. I'd like to make some for next year's coworker gifts. Won't use up a ton of fabric but they'll be cute. Have to finish some UFOs first.

    I made American Girl doll dresses for my 9 yr old DGD and turned a sweatshirt into a jacket for my 6 month old DGD. The 9 yr old was thrilled with the doll clothes. The 6 month old played with the wrapping paper but her mom love it!

    Yes, I would like to see also. I will post a picture shortly of my little pots I hope to make for 2013. I love pictures of our ideas and possible projects and sharing with each other.

    I made lip balm holders for my coworkers. They seemed to like them. I also made some embroidered and quilted pillows.

    What does yr lip balm holders look like? I made a couple, I think they are neat but I received a Luke warm thank you for the couple I gave out. I guess beauty is the eye of the beholder and I know where my Chapstick is at any given time. No more searching and searching for me!

    I made some napkin sets complete with bag to hold them. I also made two table toppers with the nine degree ruler. The swirl pattern is so amazingly easy and turns out so great!

    Deedum, I just googled a pattern. I used scrap fabric and added a ricrac or ribbon loop with a keychain silver ring. I cheated and put in stick on Velcro dots to hold it closed and then stitched on a cute button....maybe it was the Disney princess lip balms they liked and not the holders......

    I'll post the contact info here later in the day. It's from Sewing by the Sea in Trenton, Maine. The kit with the pattern and everything you need was $9.00 with Maine sales tax. I didn't think that was bad. The owner is very helpful and would probably ship it out to anyone interested.

    I know I had to contact PatriceJ, a moderator, and she had to do something with my settings. Haven't had a problem since. You might try that.

    This year was crazy and I did not have time to make any gifts. I then ended up with the flu in December and wound up just giving gift cards! Did not feel the holiday spirit!
    last year though my mother in law and I made quilted professioinal totes for most of the women on our list. Phew! Such a detailed pattern that it took us two full sewing days to make two... After we completed about eight of them we swore we would never make another! Everyone loved them though so all the work was worth it!
