 I have started working hard on making my Christmas gifts for the year. I have a lot of family members and friends that are hard to shop for so I give them gift cards. It's easier on me but I hate to not give them something a little more personal. So, I jazz up the gift card a little with fabrics picked according to their personalities and interests. Here are a couple of my favorites. I really hope they like them!

 This is for my friend that loves barbie dolls and zombies. I thought this was a great combo of the two.

 I love Edward Gorey and this fabric reminds me so much of his art.

 My Mom is an elementary teacher and we love Olivia!

 This one is just cool!

My Aunt is kind of hard to shop for so a cute holiday print for her.

I think this was a pillow case...

My brother in law loves the Simpsons.

I love this fabric that I got for my Granny. It's so pretty with the glitter.

 Hope you like them. I REALLY hope they like them too!

Great way to personalize gift card. Love the fabric choices.

Nicely done! My brother-in-law loves the Simpson's as well. Smiley Everybody will love them and use the pouches long after the card is empty, I'm sure.

What a great idea - they look awesome.  I like Edward Gorey, too.  If you're ever on Cape Cod, MA you should check out the Edward Gorey House in Yarmouthport.  It was a really intersting place. http://www.edwardgoreyhouse.org/

Amazing fabric choices.  It really takes a simple zip pouch to a WHOLE other level of awesome.
