Birthday Gifts

 The last few weeks have seen me busy in my sewing room working on birthday gifts. I have had so much fun deciding what to make for which friend. They all have similar taste but I like to make something unique to them.
 I think I did good, I did sort of make them similar gifts but each one is very different, does that make sense? The theme was sewing carry all.
 One friend has a Pouch with a view, these are tricky to make but once you have made one and you decide to make more they are pretty easy,

 Another friend is a gorl after my own heart and loves fig tree just as much as I do so I made her a sweet zipper pouch . Love that cute pear on the front. This friend collects pears so this is perfect for her.

 For my other friend I have made her a pouch with a flap, it can be used to carry a lap top or paper work or even sewing goodies, I'm sure she will put it to good use.
 This young man turned 18 last week, Jacob is our middle son. The years sure do zoom by.
 We had a lovely family dinner which was so much fun.
 I had to get a few family pics.
These boys bring so much joy to my life.

Time to start some sewing and get working on a new project.

Have a wonderful day.  xx

Lovely and practical gift ideas. It's always fun to choose a theme to suit each friend. It's amazing watching boys grow into young men, happy birthday to your son.

Very sweet pouches. Lucky girlfriends. It is too bad you did not get to hand deliver them and get their appreciation hugs. I do like the see through pouch a lot. Happy Birthday to the birthday boy! 18 is a big year it seems. I do wonder what a life with all boys would be like since I have lived the life of all girls. Little less drama I'm guessing more rough housing. Enjoy the day. Janita
