exchange gifts...


I have been frantically working on my exchange gifts for the Brown Paper Bag Exchange over at Max and Ellie.  Using this wonderful tutorial, I thread sketched a tree branch with my sewing machine, and then hand stitched felt leaves to the front of a clutch patterned from this book.  The material used to make the clutch is recycled from a old pair of pants and a bed sheet.  I am also including a set of fall coasters made from wool felt as well as a sweet treat...


  1. I absolutely LOVE these. I was thinking of you when we did our leaf challenge on SYTYC. And I thought....these are MUCH cuter than many of the crafts that were on there :). Shhh....dont tell them I said that :).

  2. Thank you Dana, that really means a lot!! You are so talented, and I admire everything you do!!

  3. I posted on WR, but wanted to say how wonderful I think this bag is!!!
