    I was feeling creative last night and whipped these out of fabric I have in my stash.

    I usually make a few things and keep them in my etsy store but I haven't felt up to it lately.

    I make these usually during the approach to the holiday season when people are looking for unique custom made gifts that you can't find in a store.

    I did these for my daughter. It is a John Deere winter print with cardinals.

    Large tote, handbag and checkbook cover.

    Hey Sara, you can find theme printed fabrics at almost any fabric store. We go to JoAnn's because they have alot of country prints.

    It is out of print. I have a bolt of it stashed for a quilt for my son.

    It's cute fabric. I just keep finding the same John Deere fabric everywhere I go.

    Those are super cute - a good way to WRAP a gift as well instead of using those paper bags.

    I hate the JD prints available now. They look so cheap and the colors just don't pop.

    Quote:I agree. I have one in my stash that I have been meaning to use in a quilt for one of the boys, but other than that, they are just the same old thing everywhere.

    Katy~ Well your doing better than me. I don't mend. I hate it. I'd rather make a project from new than fix something. [​IMG]
