I always love it when people send me photos of things they have made using my patterns or tutorials. This is a journal cover made by Julie, I love the leaf stitching! And the colors are great too. If you want to make your own, they are a really good first project for art quilting, or a great way to make a quick gift with scraps if you are an experienced quilter!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Several years ago, I made some of these cloth gift bags just to use at our house. (I have made them to give away too, but these have a specific purpose, or three!) We have a lot of far away relatives who send gifts they ordered online, so they don't always come wrapped. These bags are great for popping them in so they look nicer under the tree. Then, after we open our gifts, I put some of them, or at least the boxes, back in the bags so the tree still looks nice! In addition to those benefits, they are a lifesaver at midnight on Christmas Eve for last minute wrapping, especially for odd shaped items. I recently bought more fabric to make some more gold and some green ones too, they are so handy! I also found some chalkboard tags at Pier One this year, which will make them easier to label besides.

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I also have many tutorials, including some on you tube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
