I volunteered to participate in the 'Giving Tree' program at my mother's church. I was given the task of gifting to an 'Adult Woman'. Hmmm.. now what sort of gift do you give someone when those are the only details you know?? Well.. after Googling 'gift tutorials' for ideas for the first week of my Maternity Leave I finally came up with what I thought was a 'Grand Idea'.

I had this great two sided, Asian print fabric in my stash that was sturdy enough to make a bag.. So I made a bag, lined it with the opposite side out, made a placemat (2 layered like the bag) and then spent a whole hour putting tiny 1/4" twill tape around a 'napkin'. I added chop stix and a couple containers and Voila! A handy lunch kit.

Even Dad thought it was amazing so I guess it passes the gift test!

I sometimes dream of glorious fabrics only to wake, run to to my stash, and realize it's time for a trip to the fabric store...

I think that's beautiful, and a very handy and clever idea for a gift!  Whoever gets this will love it, I know I would!
