Well it is that time of year again where everyone is just so busy with decorating, Christmas shopping, wrapping, sending out Christmas cards, holiday programs and parties. Sometimes I feel like the holiday season is such a blur and I am a robot just going through the motions. I am trying really hard this year though to enjoy this holiday season because my kids are 6 and 2 and they are just growing up too fast. My oldest just lost her first tooth! Which means I haven't actually done much quilting or sewing these past couple of weeks. However, I did decide to sew up these super cute gift bags though. Aren't they just adorable?
I used this tutorial from Amy at Positively Splendid, which you can find here. They really are pretty easy to make. I made the smallest size, which fit gift cards and candy goodies perfectly.
I was also super exited because I finally received this book in the mail! I was so excited to get it. It is a signed copy of Quilting Wide Open Spaces by Judi Madsen, which you can purchase here. There are a few designs of hers that I would love to quilt up and this book tells you how to do just that.
I also wanted to take the time to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I can't wait to see what 2014 brings! See you then!
