Getting a head start :)

I'm getting so excited about all the great prizes 
that are coming together for the
So many awesome sponsors!
I can't wait to tell you guys about it all.
you'll have to wait a bit longer.
Are you telling your friends about it?
Remember, the more the merrier!

In the meantime I got a head start on my Christmas gift sewing.
I made this caddy using this fantastic free tutorial:
Sewing Caddy Tutorial by GinaBean Handmade 
I've used this tutorial once before and you can see it here.
This set is for my mom.
(luckily she doesn't have a computer :)
Mine is red (shocker I know) and I use it everyday 
to hold my cross stitch supplies.

I also made a matching pincushion and thread catcher.
You can find the free tutorial :
