Last Minute Secret Santa Gift

Tonight is our annual Cincy Modern Quilt Guild Holiday Potluck. I love this event - women who can quilt can almost always cook, so they'll be plenty of good grub and chatter.
 
We did a Secret Santa this month. We drew names last month and each participant was asked to give a short description of what they'd like to get from their Secret Santa. I asked for an ornament.
 
My recipient said "make something with bright colors".
Um....
 
So fast forward to yesterday:  If it wasn't for Jessica Instagraming her gift and talking about how last minute it was, I may have forgotten completely! {I thought I had another week. Duh}
 
So I kinda had to use what I had on hand.
And thank the fabric stash gods - I have plenty.
 
I made:
 A set of quilted notecards 
A zippered pouch
 
And I bought a set of gel pens, stamps and some yummy Japanese candy
 
 
 
 



 
I spent less than $10. Win!
I hope my gal likes it!

  4. Yay for you! Last minute gifts are a great way to justify keeping a handy, and extensive stash. I recognize the DS Collection, green figure eight fabric, that's your lining. I love that!
