our last sewing class in 2010
was just before christmas...
the girls finished up cozy flannel pj sets
(which they reportedly didn't take off for much of vacation)
then, we broke into the scrap bag
choosing remnants of past projects
to make gifts for parents and siblings
from the wonderful last minute patchwork + quilted gifts
they personalized kraft moleskine journals
and even improved upon the pattern-
adding a ribbon to the front that extended to serve as a bookmark
they little ladies always amaze me with their creativity!
family members were thrilled, of course
and they even have a few commissions for more...
proving nothing is better than a homemade gift!
