Little bits

I always feel the need to make things for people for Christmas. Some appreciate it, some don't.

Jackie at Sew Excited Quilts made some needle books the other day, which got me inspired

So today I made one

 

Kinda looks like a bible although that was not the plan.

Oh, I meant to say - here is my needle book, I thought I would make it look like a bible and it came out just as planned ;-)

 

There is a key ring clip on the ribbon so I can clip it to something.

 

The other thing I've been making are key lanyards that go around your neck. I work in a hotel and I'm making one for all the room cleaners master keys. There are 12, so I should be able to do it.

 

These are pretty quick and easy - here is the tutorial from simply cotton. I didn't piece all the little bits like she did but I need to get these done. Would be a. Great scrap busting project though.
