    Working on Christmas stuff

    Haven't been here in awhile,sew busy. Making scrappy gift bags for girls and ladies in the family. Bags are just string blocks with some older rose print fabric for the lining. I put a small magnetic snap for closure. All from my stash and scraps. Will fill with small gift wrapped presents. The ladies and older girls will have a NCW in theirs. Made 17 wallets so far. Love that pattern. Only posting a couple of pics of them. Smallest baby gets an elephant puzzle ball made from fleece. Hope everyone holiday sewing is going well.

    Oh my, these are great! That little elephant is just the cutest thing ever. I just love handmade gifts!! I just love what you did with the string blocks. The Initials are a nice touch. I can't believe you made those wallets. They are really polished!

    You've been a busy little elf. Lovely, thoughtful gifts. Homemade gifts are the best, in my opinion - proof that someone cares enough to spend their time on you.

    great gifts, but I LOVE those wallets
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Really nice gifts you have made. What pattern did you use for the wallet? Is it one you found on line or did you buy one?

    Beautiful gifts. The wallets look like one I am currently making. It is called the Necessary Clutch Wallet by Emmaline Bags. They are lovely and addicting.

    Yes, the wallet is the necessary clutch wallet from emmaline bags. The elephant is from the book sew and play puzzle ball animals by Abby glassenberg.
