Here's how my creative gift-making turned out this year last year! Below is drawstring pouch I made for my youngest daughter:

Below are some zippered bags I made for my older daughter -- much simpler!
And finally, below is the third one I made for my oldest daughter. Like some of the others, I pieced together various hemp fabric scraps. I then spiced this one up with a simple flower design that I blanket stitched around. I used something called Heat 'n Bond (though I think that may be just the brand name) to hold the little pieces in place while doing the embroidery.
Thanks for letting me share my creative projects! Here's to your own creativity in 2015!
