Something different for me :)

I had this little rug that I hooked a few years ago...well, i trimmed it way to close to the edge of the rug and couldn't figure out any way to bind it...so today I took out some black felt and i sewed this little pocket together, then placed a sprig of greenery inside... I was surprised at how nice it came out...I hardly ever do any sewing, just rug hooking...
I think I will gift this to my dil's mom, who will be here for Christmas day dinner...
Yesterday, sophie helped me wrapped presents...isn't she helpful????
she loves plastic bags and as soon as I bring the groceries home, she jumps into one and makes herself at home...

I love your rug hooking pocket! Is it your own design? I would love to make one, and if I start now I might have it done in time for Christmas next year. :) I am a slow poke.

Sandi, it's wonderful! What a sweet gift. She will love it I'm sure. I know I would :). And another of those unfinished projects that we have lying around now finished!
Sophie looks cute in the bag. Good helper :)
Merry Christmas!
