I was back at sewing Christmas gifts again this weekend. This time, I made more (you guessed it) box bags. I sewed up the last of the leather bags – fortunately this one went much smoother. I can’t say that I did anything different this time other than use a much heavier leather needle which may have been the solution to all my broken needles all along. The other bag is for my daughter’s ‘Secret Santa’ gift. Since they had a spending limit everyone was told to ‘be creative’ with what they give. So, I made a simple bag and embellished it with a rhinestone, “Gorgeous”, (she said she loved bling) and filled it with her favorite lotion, candy, and a homemade lip balm. Whew! Onto the next project!
