I needed a little something to stick in with some other gifty things that I had made for some friends, so in an attempt to use up some scraps I made bookmarks. All of the recipients are avid readers, so I'm sure they will come in handy for them. I love using scraps because it brings back memories of other things that I have made. Most of these fabrics were made into pillows and bags and potholders at some point.
I also made this rice bag which was inspired by my achy, pregnant body.
I think that this will be my gift to myself this year. Again, these were scraps from a past project, Potholder Pass 4. I loved the fabrics, so I am glad that I can now enjoy them myself.
I filled a tube of muslin with rice and put it in the outer case. The end closure is velcro. I would have liked to use an invisible zipper, but I didn't have one on hand. Now, just a few minutes in the microwave and I'll be feeling good! Only four more weeks to go! I can make it!
