A Quick Gift

So, I picked up the new issue of Quilts and More.  LOVE IT!  A big shout out and congratulations to Vicki for making the cover...very cool. 

This is a project featured in the magazine.  These beverage sleeves are very quick to make.  I made 3 using scraps.  :)  I even love that I finally found a use for some of my smaller batting left overs.  I am going to care package it with a starbucks gift card to a college student in the fall.  I think it will be perfect.

I found those perfect retro flower buttons at my grandma's house....I think they compliment the fabric nicely.

Very cute Kris! And what a great idea for a little pick-me-up for a college student. My niece will be leaving next week -- I'll have to remember this fun idea!
