A Farewell to Fabricville

This is just a quickie. This afternoon, I'm going to gathering of my co-workers at Faricville. The guests of honour are two other women (who quit working at the same time I did at the end of December) and me.

For the occasion ,I spent two days making these gifts for Ellie and Melanie and I thought I'd share them with you.

For Ellie I made these oven mitts and personalized them on my new embroidery machine.



I also designed and made this Sewing tote because I want Ellie to come to the sewing get-togethers that a couple of friends and I have once a month on Wednesdays so now she'll be all set.





For Melanie ,who loves pink and is a very feminine young woman, I made matching oven mitts and an apron which is my own interpretation of McCalls 5997.





I had great fun making these gifts and I hope the ladies like them.

Have a great week everyone and I hope you find time to sew!

flYour friends will love their gifts and appreciate your thoughtfulness. I have worked in fabric stores, but not for several years. Still, when I go into a fabric store, I find myself straightening shelves, putting notions back into their proper spot. I can't count the number of times that someone else in the store thinks I work there!
