Who's making gifts this holiday season? I am making most of mine, but exceptions include:
* My nieces and nephews (who would value cash or a gift certificate over anything Auntie Pokey made).
* My husband who wants a vacation over the holidays, and hey...since we're hitched, I agree! (Pass me my mojito, Dear.)
For gifts, I am making a few totes based on Kathy Mack's pattern in Quilt Scene.
I've been a huge fan of Kathy's for a while, and have made three of these totes so far. I can only show you this one below as I'm hogging it for myself:
It's a combination of Moda Fabrics (Sweetwater line) which I LOVE and over-dyed fabrics created by my good friend Wendy Richardson of Quilt Tapestry Studio.
In celebration of designating this winter as a Handmade Holiday Season, I'm giving away a FAT stack of fabrics courtesy of MODA Fabrics. Aren't they great?
If you want to be in the running to receive this fat stash to help you with your gifts this holiday season, let me know in the comments area what you hope to make for others (or for yourself). I'll draw a name this Friday (November 13) at noon EST. Good luck!
