I posted earlier in the year about a Pay it Forward project, where I would make a handmade gift for the first three people to comment that they wanted to receive said gift. (except I accepted four, because the fourth person who posted is someone it just tickled me to think of making something for....).
Only now I'm stuck.
I don't know what to make.
I am having trouble deciding --- would people prefer something I sew? A quilted hot pad? Or coaster set? Or placemats???
Should I look for some fun tote bag or mini tote bag pattern and try that??? Or something else?? What all stuff can be sewn????
Would they prefer a photo something? A set of photo notecards using some of my photos?? Beach photos? Amazon photos? Flower photos? Crazy pet photos?? Is that cheesy???
A photo calendar?? I did that for a few folks at Christmas and it was a hit. But then, who wants a calendar in the middle of the year, so scratch that.....
What about a paper crafted something? I do have all my scrap booking supplies and could do cards or note cards.......a set of paper notecards they can use?? Wrapped up in a quilted pouch???
See -- I'm stuck.
I had an idea rattling around for a quilted 12x12 square, which could be used as a hot pad in the kitchen, or a wall hanging or something. But I'm having trouble converting my loose idea into an actual pattern. And I keep second guessing -- would people be glad to receive such a thing??? I mean, I was given one at Christmas by a friend, and I love it. A lot. I use it daily. But maybe everyone else is not like me.
So -- I'm turning to all of you. Suppose you had been (or maybe you really are!) one of the three (but really four) people who commented on that post.
Suppose I was making something for you, just because I think you are really cool and I'm glad you read my blog. What would you want me to make for you????
