Oh how I treasure those precious gifts our girl's use to make in Elementary school, then quietly sneak home in the backpacks and secretly hide under the Christmas tree.
This one was made by our oldest when she was in about Fifth Grade.
I love it's large uneven stitches and carefully sewn buttons. A little burlap, yarn and buttons and you too have a a holiday sewing project for a young one in your family too.

But this does mean safe travel for family members near and far, so I'll take that instead of two feet of snow for sure!

So if you have found or can recommend a fun applique BOM for 2015, please do share, maybe I'll join ya! I'm linking up with everyone else to share and visit over at Kathy's Quilts.
Happy Slow Stiching Sunday!
