When our visit came to an end (which was much too soon), she gifted me a copy of her book, Because I Love You Sew. When we returned home from vacation, I had a chance to sit down with the book and dive into the stories. When we were visiting, Trish told me that she chose to do the book because she wanted something to pass on to her daughters. Something that she could create for them. Each project is accompanied by a story about Trish, a family member or a friend. This was my favorite part. I love the projects, but I'm a person who loves to hear others stories. I love that this book offers a peek into Trish' life. It's such a great touch!
As soon as I saw the Junior Ranger Backpack, I knew I wanted to make one for each of my girls for Christmas. Handmade gifts are the best, don't you agree? The instructions on this project were so well written and easy to follow. I was thrilled with the final result. In fact, this is high on the list of my favorite things I've ever made. I can't wait to give these packs to my girlies for Christmas!
In keeping with the spirit of the season, C+T publishing is giving one of my readers their very own copy of Because I Love You Sew. To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me the best gift you've ever received. This giveaway will run until December 16, and a winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!
