It's time for another May Arts Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Christina's blog.
The Ribbonistas are featuring handmade Christmas gifts. I love gifts that can serve dual purposes and that are useful after Christmas as well.
We're giving gift cards and cash to family members this year so I was on the lookout for a creative way to make the card/cash gifts a bit more special. I found this pattern by Heather at the Sewing Loft and knew it was perfect for using my scraps of beautiful May Arts ribbons.
These little wallets are super quick to make and can be re-used to hold make-up, tissues or as a cash wallet.
I think little boys would love the denim one..they'll never know you used ribbon to make it and I think a Matchbox car would fit in there too. :-) The denim came from a pair of my DH's old jeans and the lining is made from scraps of gorgeous May Arts Organic Cotton ribbon sewn together to form a fabric piece. How is that for recycling?
I think these would be welcomed by everyone from teachers to teens and everyone in between.
Quick, easy, pretty and fun!
