Well of course we couldn't just give them gift cards. So I whipped up 14 Rice Bags. Some of the staff received Rice Bags for Christmas several years ago and I have heard suttle comments about how old they were getting.
Then we needed gift bags for the rice bag and gift card.
I didn't realize how much Christmas fabric I had in my stash. Some of it I don't even remember purchasing. It does make for a great bag. I made the bags large enough for them to be used for something like wine bottles.
I made P a sweat shirt with a pouch. Well I purchased the swear shirt and added a holiday pouch to the front like on a hoodie. If you see my blog of 12/5 I have the one I made for me and another friend posted. It's really a simple process and it adds so much to an everyday sweat shirt. I added a white turtle neck and it makes a super gift. Try it you'll love it.
Tomorrow is gift day at the office. I hope all are pleased.
I will be doing a tutorial on December 26 for the rice bags at http://www.sewwequilt.com/
