a few last minute gifts…

I did decide they had to be made.  I was thinking I would just say, done, no more present making.  But then I changed my mind, of course, I had to. 

 Just a couple zippy wallets for some great teachers. 
I always try and make useful things as gifts, and I’m sure these will get used, and perhaps be pretty and bring a little smile to some one’s face.
I forgot to thank all of you who stopped and left such nice comments on my deep thoughts post before Christmas.  I was glad to put it out there, just want everyone to know that sometimes things seem perfect, but they’re mostly just carefully edited for maximum enjoyment. ♥

    Adorable, as always! I made one of your gathered clutches for Little Man’s teacher. She loved it. I have to put this on my next years to do…by then I will have mastered the zipper!!!

    I did bookmark a couple of your tutorials (including this one) to make as xmas pressies…but alas…perhaps I should make a few to set aside in anticipation of when I run out of time again next xmas 🙂

    “carefully edited for maximum enjoyment”. . . that needs to go on a t-shirt or something 🙂

    You make THE coolest stuff! I love it. And OMG, you are so Type A, it isn’t even funny. It just shines through your perfect work and even the photography of it!

  19. Little zip pouches are such great fun. I swore up and down that I wouldn’t be sewing any presents this year, but I broke that promise to myself as well!

  20. This is so cool. I am such a huge fan of their work. I really am impressed with how much you have worked to make this website so enjoyable
