Let's do lunch...

Hi everyone! It has been a while since I have been around here... I went to Alabama over the holidays to visit family for two weeks, and went back to work full time two weeks ago-my maternity leave is over :(.. So I haven't had a lot of time to read blogs or sew or be on the computer!
I have a few Christmas gifts to share that I made before Christmas. I didn't make as many presents this year as I usually try to do, maybe I should start now for next Christmas...

I made a sack lunch out of felt for my niece, Savannah for Christmas.

She now has a lunch she can have whenever gets the urge to have a ham, lettuce, tomato, and cheese sandwich with chips and a swiss roll on the side.

She may prefer peanut butter and jelly!

I also made her a sack of counting cookies.

There are ten cookies with chips to represent the numbers 1-10.

I stitched the corresponding number on the back of each cookie.

Hopefully she can learn to count or practice counting with her new cookies! When she saw the bite out of the number cookie, she pretending like she took a bite out of it-so cute!

I also made a set of placemats for my mother-in-law. They were fun to make, and now I think I need some too!:)

Happy Monday!
