Craft Fair Coming

So, many of you may know that my Mom is getting ready for her big craft bazaar here in my town next weekend. So, I decided to pull a few things together for the sale. A little extra Christmas money! So I will be posting what I have been making.
The first idea came from a prize that Amy at Keepin the Sunnyside won in a giveaway. I thought it was so cute. Hers came with tea, but I decided to make mine a stocking stuffer with a serving of hot cocoa inside. I love to put things like this in stockings. It makes it so much more personal and sweet.
This is a super easy craft to make. Cut a piece of felt 8 inches long by 3 inches wide. Fold over and stitch the edges.

You can straight stitch or blanket stitch. I did both with mine and liked them both ways. Sew on a snap to keep it closed.


Add some sort of cute bling to make it adorable. I found these super cute snowflakes at Jo-Ann's. I just hot glued them on. You could use a little flower, button, or any other embellishment you might have.
This is the finished product all ready for the show. I hope they sell! If not my kids love them!
