Zippered Pouches
By Mary Beth, Salt and Chocolate

Mary Beth has some great zippered pouches and tissue holders (view more on her Flickr site), and many of them use some of our favorite fabrics! Make some of your own with our Purses and For Your Purse or Pocket tutorial compilations.

Holly separated her meme answers into two posts on her blog, Thoughts of an Incurable Midwesterner. Find the first post here and the second post here, and learn more about Holly’s fantastic compilation gift ideas, baking memories, traditions and her Great-(Great?)-Grandmother’s Clifford Tea Cake recipe. Holly has lots of gifts in the works including this (completed!) Advent calendar she made for a friend, inspired by one she saw on the Allsorts blog.


Liz has a nice selection of handcrafted gifts (and photos of the gifts!) on her Madre Adoptiva blog. Liz notes that, “A huge portion of my Christmas gift-giving list are children. They range in age from 16 months to 11 years old, with the bulk of them being between 2 and 5.” She’s giving crayon rolls, totes with covered journals, these wooden dolls and carrying case and much more.

By Randi, i have to say…

Randi’s Flickr site has more detail shots of her patchwork camera straps for you to enjoy. You could add one to a camera bag from our Tech Gifts tutorials compilation!
