My Gifts for the "Garden Girls"

I am back from a most wonderful weekend. Natalea's Garden Art Party was a feast for the eyes as well as my creative soul! Over the next week I will share with you our garden art weekend. Our lovely host's beautiful garden, food and gifts were an absolute delight. So to start, here are the gifts I made for these special women.
These little gift bags were sewn with garden themed fabric and little garden girls on the front.
I made fabric cuff bracelets for my new friends. I used a vintage quilt as the base and added lace and trim, buttons and rhinestone jewelry to make each one as unique as the ladies I met.
They were really fun to make. Here is some of the detail.
I have sooo much to share. I took tons of pictures of Nat's garden, awesome decorations and artwork around her house, the great art projects we did and of course the girls. So I will be back to show you more!
