Now that Christmas is over I can share how I made several of the gifts and stocking stuffers. I think all the recipients read this blog, so sharing before Christmas would ruin the surprise.
One thing everyone got in their stocking was a ribbon key chain. Sissy got me one from a fancy gift store for my birthday a year ago. They retail for about $10. I made mine for less than $3.
To start, cut a piece of ribbon about 10" long, and singe the ends with a lighter or put some fray-check on.
If you'd like, you can add a design using embroidery or freezer paper stencils before you start sewing.
If you've got a spring or summer wedding coming up, this might be a cute gift for your bridesmaids, done in your wedding colors with their initial on it.
