I also completed a drawstring bag for the family white elephant swap. We play poker most weekends and most of us use a Crown Royal bag to carry our change in. I thought it would be fun to make a custom bag for the swap.
I also made a Christmas stocking for my niece Tasha. The Mr.'s family has a tradition of swapping filled stockings. Usually we just buy a semi cheep one and go on but this year I decided to make mine for my partner. It came out pretty good but got so bulky at the top that I was scared I'd break yet another needle (I only have one extra left) so I skipped the inside lining. I'm hoping it won't matter too much.
