A Quickie

This time of year is full of family birthdays. I try as often as I can to make gifts for everyone, but I must admit, I'm losing steam on the grown-ups and feeling like it would be best to concentrate on the kids (nieces and nephews). Up first are my sister's girls, both this month. When we were young, she and I often got 'the same but different gifts' and this usually worked out.....except for the clock radio Christmas, but that's another story.

So, my nieces will soon receive these sweet wallets made from my coveted Japanese linen stash using Valori Wells Little Wallet Card pattern. You've seen these here before. This time, I think I'll throw in a few bucks so they can buy themselves something fun.

These are beautiful, Krista; great gift idea both with and without extra stuffing! Are they difficult to make; I could use some Christmas gift ideas? Do you make them for both boys and girls? Where did you get the pattern?
