Before Christmas, my husband was attending a white elephant gift exchange as part of a work get-together. He ultimately decided to take a bottle of homebrew as the gift, but he thought it looked kind of lame, since he'd forgotten to buy a bag to put it in. I asked how long he had before he had to leave, then brought him a couple of Christmas fabrics from the stash. He chose this one, and I whipped up a quick lined bottle bag, which we then topped off with a red ribbon tie. He told me later that the bottle of beer was the hit of the party, and that everyone was surprised and impressed to learn that his wife made the bag, let alone so fast! (This is why we sew....and keep a stash!)
Thing 2's teacher is due any day with her second child and second girl. The room moms decided to throw a baby shower for teacher and kids, and so of course I had to contribute some dinosaur appliqued onesies! But I also thought it would be fun for the older sister to get to "match" her new baby, so I did matching appliques for the little girl. Unfortunately, WM is down to very few long-sleeved no design shirts, so I ended up with two shirts of the same color - but one is a turtleneck and one a crew neck.
While I had the Jeep fabric out, I also appliqued two onesies with Jeeps, to go in with my sister and brother-in-law's Christmas box. These are for their first baby. I hope to be the first one to give them Jeep baby stuff. :)
