Sew & Tell Friday!
Its Friday! This week for Sew and Tell I have some little gifts that I made for a variety of uses. Hubby is giving wine to some people at work but the couple of people that don't enjoy wine will get one of these with a Starbucks card. The girls may take these for a couple of teachers, the youngest will be taking some of the bags w/o mugs for her lunch buddies. I am thinking these will be nice to just have around the next couple weeks as things come up.
I made 12 of the bags this morning in 3 different colorways. I used this pattern/instruction though I don't plan to fill any with the molten lava cake. They are filled with a variety of holiday candy I picked up at Target. I found these mugs at wal-mart and knew that I had the fabric at home to match. I took inventory of my remaining fabric and and am going to buy some contrast to make the wine bags too!
Be sure to check out the other great projects on Amy's site today! I am excited to get started looking because every week there is such great inspiration!

Your little mugs are adorable! I saw that tutorial on Terri's blog and thought it was such a good idea -- until she mentioned those little microwave cakes. I made one months agoand it was rubbery! So, I'm glad you've found something else to go in them LOL!ReplyDelete
