The past few months have seemed like the time of friends and even some relatives turning 50 years old... myself included! So I've been making "Over the Hill Pandemic Survival Kit"s to give as gifts. They've really become a hit amongst friends and family!
Here's one I made for a friend... it consisted of a St Patty's Day theme since the holiday was only a couple weeks away from her birthday.
I made a cute little lunch sack style gift bag with an appliqued toilet paper on the front, and a snap closure, and a mask with adjustable elastic.
Then for my boyfriend's sister, we got carried away with the gag gifts, so I made a very large gift sack for her! I used black Kona cotton, doubled up for the outside and inside linings. Then traced the letters and designs onto Wonder Under, using my light pad. Ironed to the backs of the fabrics I was using for the decoration/wording, and cut them out, then ironed onto the front panel of the bag. I did a raw edge applique to keep it all attached permanently.
OMGosh, she enjoyed it...and everyone was laughing hysterically! Such a fun time with family and friends!
