Birthday Gifts

A dear, sweet friend has had a birthday - and I wanted to make something special for her! Of course, my gifts are about a week late. I have a bit of a problem with buying and saving fabric for that perfect project. This was a great opportunity to use some of those fabrics - Amy Butler's Daisy Chain mosaic in kiwi and Pretty Please by Jennifer Paganelli in pink/orange. 

My most favorite bag pattern is the Practical Bag from Tanya Whelan and Grand Revival Designs. I've made many, and use several in my everyday life.Can't get enough of them! (In fact, I'm making another for myself as we speak.) 

And so, I made a practical bag and a coffee sleeve. I can't wait to give them as a gift!

  1. I know how lame is it to have your father comment first, but a coffee sleeve for my morning Starbucks for Christmas would sure save a lot of trees, just sayin'
