I like sewing personalized gifts for my family and friends. Most of the time they have names that they can never find on items in the stores. They are so excited to see a handmade gift that has their name on it. I like making people happy so I make them things that they will use and cherish. Most people don’t know all it takes to make a gift. They are not aware of all the time it takes to make any gift whether easy or difficult. I love making bags and quilted throws and one of a kind items.
