One of my Yahoo groups is involved in a swap featuring the 12 Days of Christmas - 12 of us were to choose a number from 1 through 12 and represent that number (and day - from the song) by creating 12 - 5"x5" pages. We were to wrap each page so that everyone would have a surprise when the specified day arrived.
I was delighted to find panels of fabric at fabric.com that featured the Twelve Days of Christmas. I cut out the panels, one for each day, and then sewed a coordinating fabric to the back. I then stamped cotton twill with each person's name and sewed to the fabric "bag". I enclosed my 5x5 page into each one (I coordinated the DAY that each person had with the number on their bag - this will give them a little storage pouch for their pages until they bind them) and then stitched them closed with a long (easy to open, I hope!) stitch. Clicking on the photo will enlarge it so the names are visible. On a very sad note, Gina Wise was one of the participants and she suddenly died a few weeks ago - this saddened all of us greatly! It will be an extra special day when we open the package from dear Gina!
