Gift sets

I have created 3 gift sets like this one, but all in different fabrics.  They are for my midwife & her assistants as a "thank you" for everything they've done/will be doing for me.  I know I won't have much sewing time after the baby is born so I'm glad to have them finished now.

I love the fabric! Where did you get it?

Neither of you have a way to contact you through blogger so I'll respond here...

Thanks Tristen - that's very sweet of you.

Mike & Wendy - I bought this fabric from Hobby Lobby. I LOVE it so much that I'm thinking about buying more to make myself a tote or 2 from it.

Would you mind sharing the pattern for the notepad holder? I'm new to sewing and have been looking for an easy project like this to do. Thanks! :D

I didn't use a pattern. I just used a standard size notepad (I think 5" x 8") and used that for a template... adding a few inches to the height of the holder and doubling plus 3" or so for the width. Maybe I could make a tutorial for these one day. You might look online... there are probably some tutorials/patterns out there. :)
