I picked up 2 fat quarters this afternoon when I was getting the snaps. I made one coin purse and 2 checkbook covers, and have some decent sized scraps left. With snap and stabilizer less than $3 per set! I used a medium weight stabilizer on the back and I really like that, it made the checkbook cover, well, more stable. See the post below for links to the tutorials on both. Oh, and it took less than an hour to make both!
So,this set is being sent off in a birthday card.
I LOVE these fabrics. I hope P loves them too.
My goal this year is to remember all my siblings (7!) and nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews(21!). Hmmmmmm wait, that's a LOT. The first niece and nephew birthdays got store bought, but at least they were remembered. Ok, n/n's may not get hand-made, but siblings get hand made.
I have 11 months and 25 birthdays left to go this year! Not to mention various friends, and DH and IL's. I guess 2009 is going to be a crafty year!
