Christmas Recap

Even though it was just two weeks ago (or so), it feels like Christmas was so long ago. Here are some of the handmade gifts I crafted:

These are cute little wallets that are closed with a snap:

 We put a gift card in them. The turned out so cute.
 I made several notebooks:
 The best part of all of these was that I pulled from my stash. Apparently I have a lot of nice fabric!
Curly took this table topper to work for a gift exchange. I was sad to see it go. I told him that if no one wanted it, he was to steal it back and bring it home. The person who opened it really liked it, so he felt it was better if she kept it. I think I need to make one for myself.
It wasn't quite the handmade Christmas I had envisioned, but it was still pretty good. I'm already plotting for next year.

I love all of your fabric choices. What is the fabric name for the little snap wallets?

I am planning next year as well. It never hurts to start early:)

Awesome gifts! I made similar wallets and put gift cards in them for my secretaries last year!
