I mean REALLY last minute, not for Christmas but for tomorrow!!
It dawned on me I had nothing for the boy's teacher and teaching assistant so I set to work. I'm low on zips - 2 left and they're already bagsied. I also lack any felt to make cute ornaments or something. So I decided to make Jeni's lined drawstring bags using her wonderful tutorial! She has such great taste (vintage sheets and pyrex - yum!!), a lovely, positive attitude, a rabbit called George and a great blog called In Color Order. If you've not visited her (and I doubt that!!), you must.

sorry about the flash! Believe me these look much prettier in real life!

These bags came together quickly, I needed to make two and I only used 4 fat quarters (and still had good scraps). I had to make the main exterior fabric 8.5" x 10.5", but what's 1/2" really?!

I filled it with some nice goodies - nail polish and a bit of Clarins (I really hope they NEVER read this but I get the stuff from a friend I used to work with - can't afford nice skincare anymore!!). Although I easily could have kept it for myself so passing it on is still very kind even if I didn't spend a lot!! I'm guessing they're going to get a lot of chocolate so I wanted to give them a different treat :)

I loved making them and am going to make one for my nephew and fill it with sweets, I also have 2 quilts to make for my nieces and 2 more zip pouches before Christmas. Then I am going to get very drunk ;)

I'm linking up to making rebecca lynne and seeing what you've all been doing this fine Thursday!!
Her posts are always great but this week it's especially wonderful and I would love for everyone to read her touching post today :)
