Welcome to my part of blogging land. Thanks for dropping in to see what a lovely gift I received. And a bit of talk on easy gifts to make.
Thank you Samm for putting together this very fun blog hop! And to Marlene for being a great hostess.
My beautiful gift came from Margie at Threading my needles blog.
She said she couldn't decide which pincushion to give me, so she sent me both :)
Aren't they lovely?!
Thank you so much Margie. You do such lovely work.
One of my favorite things to make is bags. Purses, tote bags, hand bags, lots of different shapes and sizes. They can be short and quick, or take 3 or 4 hrs.
Mostly I make up my own pattern. But this year, when I saw the Sew Together bag by Sew Demented (click on the link to buy the pattern), I knew it would make the perfect gifts for some of my quilting friends. And it was the perfect excuse to buy a pattern ;)
I've made 2 so far, and really enjoy making them. I have 2 more cut and ready to make, they are addicting. lol (You'll see the first one I made tomorrow, on Cindy's blog.)
They can be soft and sweet.
Bright and colorful.
Or just plain fun.
You can quilt the outer piece or use interfacing, use a variety of colors, or all the same. What a great pattern.
I hope you are enjoying the other blogs in this hop. You can find the full schedule over at Marlene's. This is who I hopped with today.
