Really-Last-Minute Gift Idea🎁

2 more days ’til Christmas!  If you have a piece of interesting fabric that is heavier than quilting cotton (linen?  One of those wonderful Japanese fabrics?), simply serge the edges, flip one long end up to create deep enough pockets for pens or pencils, and stitch little dividing seams.  Fill with fun markers or colored pencils…fold other long end over…and roll!  To secure, stitch a pretty ribbon at one end, and simply wrap several times then tuck.

This would be a perfect accompaniment to one of those oh-so-popular grown-up coloring books.  My favorite is the one designed by Jamie Fingal:

Happy last-minute gifting 😊…
