For Christmas, we gave a family member some money towards an elliptical trainer she's been saving up for. Well, I didn't want to just wrap cash in a box. This family member gave me her sewing machine, so I sewed together a quick envelope large enough to hold bills. I wanted to add something special, so I embroidered an elliptical trainer on the front, to tell her what the money was for.

I thought it turned out cute. My husband thought it was a "robot baby" (his words, not mine) until I asked him to look closer. I was proud that I was able to whip it together in an hour on Christmas Eve...one of those last minute Christmas ideas.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
