Here Comes Goodbye

One of my very dear friends from work is leaving us for a new and exciting opportunity.  While I am of course very excited for her, I will miss her very much.  I stumbled upon this fabric tutorial from The Cottage Home.  Great directions.  Easy project to make.  I added a little extra stabelizer and found it more difficult to get share corners, so next time I won't and I think it will be quite sturdy anyway.  This is my first time working with canvas.  What a great use for some scraps.

I lve that Kris. Thanks for the link for the tutorial, I want to make one now. I like that it uses a hair elastic, easy to find and the color can match as well.

Bummer!!!! I am sure it is good for her, but not for you.

I know she will love that great gift. There is nothing that speaks from the heart like a lovely homemade gift.
