    Re: Christmas gifts for my salon????

    I made these quilted keyrings in a snap. I made a quilt sandwich, FMQ'd several hearts (free hand), then cut them out with pinking shears. A little ribbon sewed on a ring and a one-word affirmation on each finished them off.

    (The "words" were printed out on transfer material, ironed on, cut out, and stitched on. If your machine embroiders, you could do it that way, too.)

    Each one cost me 75 cents. I can make about 15 of them an hour.

    Here's another version, with an appliqued heart adding an additional layer, then constructed as a described above.

          Joan those are adorable and Quick! I saw them at the Retreat making snap bags, they were also cute and those candy fabric dishes were so lovely and could be used by teachers in tons of ways! Love to read the ideas on here

            I can only imagine how expensive it can cost for gifts for all your clients! My hairdresser gives either a wallet-sized calendar or a pen...you must really cherish your clients to sew presents!

            I am embedding a link to a picture of a colored pencil wrap case. I am only adding the link for the visual since I do not think I could put in words what I am thinking. Here are my thoughts:

            (1) consider a comb, brush, (someone suggested a curling iron holder), cosmetics wrap. A smaller version could be made for a handbag or a larger version for luggage.

            (2) you already have fabric which is not seasonal (bonus!); it also appears the wrap could also be made using jelly roll strips.

            (3) you can add a pocket to hold your business card; of course this is a necessity so they have your number handy to schedule their next appointment!

            To be honest, I just talked myself into making one for my daughter and me.
