Holiday gift ideas from July 24 meeting

Members brought in ideas of small items which could be made for holiday gifts.
 Add a strip of holiday fabric to make your gift bags pop!
 Have some mens' ties you no longer need or want?
 Turn them into a wine or other bottle carrier or gift bag.
 Nothing cheers up a holiday table more than holiday fabric napkins, just hem and go!
 Use the design in a holiday print as your quilting guide. Use batting and a solid back and quilt away. Bind and you're done. Holiday place mat.
 Stay hydrated! Cut out a circle, ease a cylinder of fabric onto it, add straps and a lining and you're done.
 Hot beverage sleeves take only a scrap of fabric and can be given around a cup with a gift card inside.
Cut out the shape, put zipper then batting a center strip and line. Great holiday gift.
