    Since we had too many 'friends' this year, giving our usual money would have been crazy...we came up w/plan B...:)
    The first one is a sewing kit...at our local wally world, they had for about $1.15 a sewing kit w/all the needs of a sewing fix...so, filled these w/the goodies from that...the other is a huge tote bag that they use for overnights...my kid has one also and uses actually for her college books, etc...Skeat......(who made these using patterns)

    Nice! I like the fabrics, especially. Is that Mark Lipinski I see on the tote?

    The black and white on the tote is 'Delilah' by Johnny Karwan for Clothworks...the pink dot and the green wasn't marked on the edge to tell you:) The yellow and black sewing kit is 'Tres Belle' by Bj Lantz
    The tote pattern is 'The Big Shopper' #1169 BYOB II by Whistle pig Creek Productions. The sewing kit (which I cut down in size) is 'Gifts for Quilters' byannie.com

    (My Black and White block for the swap was Mark's fabric) Skeat

    How cute skeat! I love the inital on the tote bag and the sewing/mending idea was a good add in. Good thinking!
