i recently sent a little handmade xmas pressie off in the mail. i couldn't resist gifting a fun pieced zippered pouch, needlebook and a small project bag (not shown) for the receiver. it was hard to give away this grey/yellow combo pouch. i adore it and hope my friend does too. i also added in one of my fave xmas cards that were made up with all of my blog info and a special message inside from moo.com last xmas. i heart them so much i'm thinking of framing the last few i have to put up as holiday decorations. so cute!
the best part of sending my gift away (other than the fun of making someone a pressie) was receiving my pressie. how awesome was my gift below? she sure captured my personality! who can resist a grey velvet bow clutch, awesome fabrics and thread??? i did a very big happy dance when i opened my parcel. thank you so much heidi (of elegance & elephants). i looooove it!
what handmade pressies have you made this year? what's your favorite go to pattern to use when giving friends a gift? happy sewing ladies....coffee's on, come say hi!
