Dec 5, 2008

So this Christmas I have decided that since my extended family never (or very rarely) uses anything I buy them that I will donate to a charity that I find appropriate for the person.  My neice and nephew(4 and 1) will both have a donation to the National Wildlife Federation (this way since they are little they will each received a stuffed animal), my sister Race for the Cure (our grandmother passed from a 16 yr battle afew years back), etc. 

I did feel that it would be nice to have something tangible for each person, so I am sewing something for each of them.  My brothers and father have been traveling so I will make them a thin fanny pack thing that can fit in their pants for their passports and such, shopping bags for the women, and whatever else I can easily make (I am an amatuer, self taught seamtress).  Wish me luck!!
