Crafty Gift ideas





I am so badly wanting to make these Charm Bags. As soon as I saw them from Melissa Corry's web blog - Happy Quilting  I said, oh my, I have a few charm squares that could be used to make these for nieces (and myself!). The tutorial is from Moda Bake Shop, which I use to frequent quite often but I've forgotten about it.

But my sister has asked me to make some baby bibs for a friend who just had a baby girl. As luck (providence) would have it, I happened to have a baby bib in the kitchen (for some unknown reason) so I made up a template. I went to sort out some fabric and little miss 5 came up to me with her new drawing and custom made tongue for her picture person. Hubby said" Was that your template?" and we laughed.

I'm loving these bibs though from Amy of Nana Company

Let's just say things are going to be pretty busy the next few weeks leading up to Christmas.

Don't forget about my book giveaway below, open to everyone! Don't be shy. I'll extend it to the end of the week.
