Simply Sewing Christmas!

Oh my gosh I just about forgot to post the projects we are doing this month for Simply Sewing 101. To many coals in the fire I guess, does anyones else have this problem this time of year. But here they are just a little late. We will be making these fun and simple gifts. All of these would make great gifts for neighbors, teachers, co-worker or anyone else on your list. Take a look and see if you want to join us on Saturday morning, December 12th at 9:00. We will be having brunch to go along with our sewing. Call me or e-mail if you want all the details to make any of these projects. My e-mail address is This is a fun hot pad using 5 10" squares. I've opened it up just a little bit and put some cute holiday cookie cutters inside then I attached a tag that says "Sending you Holiday wishes to "HOT" to handle!
The next gift idea are these cute dish towels. This is probably by far the easiest thing on the earth to make, and I'm serious. I cut 2" strips the width of my towel and add a 1/2" on each end for tucking under, then I sew the ric rac over the raw edge. Now really how easy is that? The tag on this one says " Sending "CLEAN" and "SPARKLING" Christmas wishes your way! Merry Christmas.
These are little gift bags. A little more work, but very, very cute. The small bag is just the right size for lotions, a small notebook and pen. The larger gift bag is great for childrens books, treats, etc. You could add a tag that says "FILLED" with Christmas love.
Well did you see anything you like? If "SEW", come join us on Saturday morning. The more the merrier this holiday season. Looking forward to seeing you.
