On Monday The BG mentioned he needed a gift for the secretary he works with. I really like her , and I think she’s the kind of person that would enjoy something handmade.
So I got to work and pulled out some REALLY old fat quarters that I have always wanted to use up, and an old pattern from a long ago APQ magazine.
I made one for us too since the one I had made years ago mysteriously grew a big glob of super glue after some children that I know had fake nails on…. Hmmm?
Here they are ready to quilt today.
Then I started to think …maybe these are too bright ?
Then I remembered I had a charm pack of fabric that is kind of secretary-ish. What to make, what to make? I always wanted to try Pink Penguin’s lunch bag!
So yesterday about 2:00 I started, and by evening ( with laundry, house work, and dinner thrown in there) I had finished two lunch bags that I adore! I had to fiddle around with the measurements because I did patchwork, and I switched up some of the finishing instructions, but all in all it was super fun and easy. Thank you Pink Penguin!!
I ran out to Target last night when I was done to find some sort of bento box, or lunch container to slip inside. I found this really cute little box that holds a sandwich and sides.
It fits perfectly inside and still has room for a water bottle or drink.
(Opps I see some threads that need snipping)
When I showed The BG and asked him which gift he wanted to give, he said definitely the lunch bag!! Glad I made two, cause I really wanted one too! LOL
I learned over the years to always make two of the little projects, cause sometimes it’s just really hard to give away! =)
How about you ? Are you making some last minute projects?
