My MIL's Birthday Gift

Hi there. Happy Sunday! Well, I can finally share this with you, since it is officially my MIL's birthday, and I will be giving her the gift today. I didn't want her to see it early =). A while back (over a year, I saw the tutorial for this on a blog. I can't get the link to work anymore, but I wanted to say this is NOT my original idea.

I have spent most of my weekend either sorting Girl Scout cookies, or sewing fabric banners. I volunteered to help make a Thanksgiving craft with my DD's class. I will share that with you later this week. I am really pleased with how they are turning out.
