I am officially in full on holiday mode here, and checking my to do's off my list one thing at a time. You all know how much of a sucker I am for a good swap, so when Amy organized the Secret Santa swap over on twitter, I just couldn't resist.
I put together this lined drawstring bag using Jeni's tutorial, and am absolutely in love with this pattern. I'm thinking there will be many a Christmas gifts "wrapped" in one of these drawstring bags. Jeni also has a pattern for this drawstring bag for 7 different sizes as well, I'm thinking I'll need to purchase that pattern!
Secret intel tells me my partner digs this Merry Main Street Alexander Henry print, so I paired it with some Ready Set Snow by Me and My Sister designs for Moda. The outer accent red fabric is another Christmas Moda print as well.
Here is my swap package ready to be shipped off tomorrow, hopefully my partner likes! I used some more Merry Main Street to "wrap" a quilting/sewing book for my partner (which would totally give it away if I showed what it is!) and added a few fat quarters from my stash and 2 holiday pin toppers.
How is your holiday sewing coming along??
