Some little gifts

I made these cute little journals for my cousin’s daughters.  I used fabric scraps and added their initials to the front, not a bad use of old cereal boxes (we are a cereal loving family).  I tucked in a little sparkly gel pen into each package so they could start writing/doodling right away.

and I did manage to finish my husband’s stocking before Christmas!
And I can’t wait to show you what I made for my Dad out of an old pair of pants of his, he’ll be thrilled – mainly because I was supposed to make him something last summer.  Hopefully it’ll be worth the wait!

    cute and cute! you are the zippered pouch queen! and thank you for noticing mine on SYTYC. 🙂 You finally get to see them! Good thing no one can inspect them too closely because they’re definitely a work in progress.
    Beautiful pictures Anna. Makes me want to pick up the little journal and write a note to someone.

    I still can’t believe you embroidered all those amazing stockings. They look so great and the your family should feel so lucky – along with all the extended family members who benefit from your talents.
