I am often guilty of starting up my holiday gift making quite late in the game. Usually on Christmas eve I’m up late rushing some final stitches on projects.
Last week I made my first holiday gift of the year. Not bad, it’s the middle of November. The shopping tote is my own design and I’ve made it so many times now. It’s such a useful bag to have around. (and it’s reversible!) I used a lovely yellow floral Japanese linen/cotton fabric for the outside and a pink ‘1001 Peeps’ fabric for the lining. When I picked out the fabrics, I knew exactly who the bag would be for. I’ll be sending it off to NYC really soon so that it arrives before Christmas.
Now to get organized with the rest of my holiday making!
