The one and Only Madame Samm has once again out done herself!
Our Wonderful CheerLeader for this hop is Marlene from Stitchin By the Lake. Had it not been for these two ladies I would probably been a sewing mouse again this year. So I Thank both of you,Samm,for putting this hop together and Marlene,for being the perfect CheerLeader!
All the items created for this hop need to take only a few hours to make,from start to finish. The first item on my list was a mini ipad case for a certain young lady who has been deployed and should be returning home to the states soon. She loves purple...
The open wide zippered pouch from noodlehead. For these I used some orphan blocks which made them an even quicker project to sew! The one on the right was the first,and my measurements were just a bit off. It still turned out cute though.
Stuck for ideas for those hard to sew/shop for guys on your list? Why not make them a Tool Roll to hold all those wrenches and or screwdrivers? I would recommend checking to see if your tools will fit before just marking the slots as directed in the tutorial.(ask me why;) Since I did not have vinyl,this one is made with a fake leather exterior and some military fabric from my sons discarded Camos.
These fleece hats sew up super quick! If you need a tutorial there is a great one here.
How about a stocking wine bottle gift "bag"? Be sure to adjust the size for your bottle so that it will fit into the stocking!
Since this Hop is all about Gifts...

Being first on the hop had its perks,like this Sweet Cuppa Cozie Gift from Madame Samm herself! (complete with mug) She made me the perfect gift! As I have a very bad habit of making myself a cuppa joe or cocoa,and then getting distracted... I have used it quite often already and am enjoying it very much,as it keeps my mug/drink hot for quite some time.
Thank You so very much Samm,the gift is not only beautiful but,fits me to a T too! I Love it.
Okay I have kept you long enough off you go to see what the lovely ladies sharing the first day of the hop have
