Four more gifts completed

Here's the four gifts I finished last night. The two aprons are for my 8 yr old and 5 year old and use this pattern It was very easy to make, directions were great and they are so cute! I'm going to make the adult version for my neice who is turning 16. She loves to cook and I want to give her something special since it's her 16th birthday. I'll put it with her gift of money :) The two key fobs are for my 8 year old's Brownie leaders. I used this tutorial (scroll to the bottom) If I had more D rings in the house I would have kept going last night and made more. You just need a little fabric, interfacing or ribbon, a D ring and a split ring.

I can't believe the challenge is over-feels like it just started. I feel very honored to have been a part of a great group of people. Thank you to and Kim for having the challenge and inviting me. Thank you to Kris for being such a great leader who always left very supportive, motivational messages for us even when a certain 3 year old cut a project up :) Thanks too to the other leaders-even though we had different teams, everyone was sharing and very supportive. Lastly, thanks to all the members of Team Kris for always being there-glad I got to know all of you-and to all the thrifty fifty-it's a great group of people.

I didn't quite get to finish all the gifts on my list so stayed tuned for more projects, pictures and sharing!

Dawn, what a nice post. THANK YOU! That made my day! Your latest creations turned out great! I love the idea of making one of those aprons for your 16-year-old niece. You could even tuck that little money into the cute pocket on the apron! What a fun surpise that would be! It sure has been wonderful getting to know you through this challenge. I'm excited to hear that you'll still be posting more because I would love to see!
