This weekend was fairly laid back because of the wet weather hanging over Texas. I ended up watching the entire first season of Downton Abbey. I can see why everyone is hooked. I loved it and I can't wait to start on season two.
The weekend also lent a lot of time in the studio. I finally got around to making this gift sack for my new nephew. I'm the auntie that likes to fill their library so I got him three wonderful books in honor of his arrival to our family, and I needed a little library sack to send them to him. I used remnants of some fabric I had from another project, and used a piece of twine for the drawstring.
These sacks are easy to make and can add a little something to any gift you are giving. The bonus: they're reusable. They won't tear like paper sacks and they can be used for other purposes. This website has a variety of patterns.
