I finally finished my $5. suitcase. After mod podging it, it would stick where it was hard to open. So I had the brainy idea that I would put purple rick rack (imagine that) around the bottom so when I closed it, it would no longer stick. You guessed it now I can not close it. Whoops! So I finally got the middle latch to close so I forgot to open it and take a picture of the inside. The inside is also done in purple fabric. I am going to store all my rick rack, trims and ribbons in it.
I joined a Christmas tag swap at Sue's http://suelovescherries.blogspot.com/. This is what my swap partner Angelina sent me from http://shoprubyjean.com/ I just love my new tag. Angelina also sent me the most beautiful angel Christmas ornament. I tried to take a picture of it but could not get a good picture. (sorry) Thank you so much Angelina. I would also like to Thank Sue for hosting this swap. It was a lot of fun.
This is the tag I sent Angelina.
My cousin had a little boy 3 years ago. He is like an only child since his bigger brother is 19. I do not think there is a toy that he does not have so I decided to make him this pillow case. Landon seemed to just love it.
Tomorrow is going to be a big sew day for me. I am not making anyone quilts this year for Christmas since I did not get my act together early enough. So it is going to be other crafty things. I will have to show you as I finish them. I missed the FNSI last night. We had a Christmas party at work and by the time I got home I was pooped. But we did have a lot of fun and laughs.
