Mary ConleyDear friends,

I had so much fun taking homemade gifts to my friends at Christmas luncheons this year, and I want to tell you about it.

Last December I posted about making hot pads out of old jeans for presents.

You may want to go to this link for my tutorial as it seemed to be a hit.



This December, I also made hot pads for gifts. Twenty-one! And they cost me absolutely nothing but time. These were very easy since there is no bias tape around the edges, but more than that, they used up some of my stash of left-over material. I even finished emptying six spools of thread and some bobbins! How fun it was to put to good use what I thought my children would discover in the attic someday.

Super cute Mary! Especially the jeans pockets ones.
