I bought some fun vinyl that was based on a flowery dress worn by Taylor Swift during the Grammys. I also bought zipper pulls shaped like the stage from her Eras tour, and Eras labels. This was probably the pouch I enjoyed making the most. Of course, it went to my favorite Swiftie, Charlotte.

How do you safeguard your fabric scissors?
Instagram says this is my Top Nine based on "likes". I like that our wedding photo made it into the mix.
Every year we use the same gift bags. Over and over. They were really starting to show their age. Last year I decided I wanted to replace them with lined drawstring bags made with Jeni Baker's pattern, which I have made probably a minimum of 30 times. It's a great pattern--highly recommended.
I should have done a better job of time management, and started them earlier than five days before Christmas!! It's a great way to use favorite fabrics. I ended up making 14 Christmas bags and a fun Happy Birthday bag. Last Thursday, when I started cutting and sewing, I was really regretting my procrastination. But when the last drawstring was in and I just popped the presents in each bag, I was super happy I made them. Of course, you know what this means--next year, Christmas gifts will be purchased based on what fits in these bags! Haha.
