Not so Grinchy

I wasn't planning on doing ANY Christmas presents this year. We are still between homes and I just wasn't feeling it.

I had started color soft books for my nieces, so I decided to finish those. (They are almost identical.)

And wouldn't they look so cute in a little fabric pouch made from Jeni's tutorial?
Hedgie Pouches!

Those were so much fun, why don't I make a few more? Maybe one for each girl in the family??

But they look so sad empty. :( Maybe some marshmallows will fill them up...And some hot cocoa mix too...

So that's how I ended up making 13 pouches, 2 batches of marshmallows, and 1.5 batches of hot cocoa mix. I had to cut myself off before I made caramel sauce...

There's a bit more sewing that I want to do, so maybe after Christmas I'll have more to show you. I get to spend all next week with my little baby niece, Lydia, so I am SUPER excited.

  2. What? No caramel sauce?! There'll be a rebellion in the ranks... :oD

  3. Wow, you are a MACHINE!! Well done. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas. x x

  4. I am so addicted to making those bags - glad to see I'm not the only one! Yours look great and I'll bet they were loved too :-)
