Nancy's Christmas Gift-- Ssshhh!

You know my very short sister is very hard to outfit in clothes that fit her.  She's always asking for me to shorten sleeves and put elastic in them.  She hates pulling warm shirts over her head.  On top of that she's hard on clothes, so we don't buy hand wash or dry clean things.  This pink sweatshirt jacket will be one of her Christmas gifts.  Don't tell!  Putting elastic casings on the sleeves was a big challenge, but I know she'll like it. The neckline is decorated with matching yo-yos.

Great Idea for traveling quilters!

This iron tote opens up to reveal an ironing pad - great for workshop and mini retreat days.  The pattern is "Caddy Pad" by Sisters' Common Thread and the pattern came with the heat resistant fabric.  It is also a safe way to take home a still-warm iron.
