Christmas Pennie Pockets

What do you do with your scraps of Christmas fabric that are left over and too cute to throw in the bin?
I made Pennie Pockets with my left over pieces from Hip Hop Holiday.

I found the free tutorial for these cute Pennie Pockets designed by Happy Zombie over on Moda Bake Shop.








I love making yo yo's with the easy to use Quick Yo Yo Maker by Clover.
Have you tried using these?
These Pennie Pockets can be made for any holiday. I thought these would be nice filled with Christmas candy.
I know it feels like Christmas is still very far away, but I realize it will sneak up before we know it.
I would like to give handmade gifts this year, and my "to do" list is long.
These are now tucked away for neighbor gifts.
You can also make the pockets without handles.
Or add ric rac for an easy handle.
Very fun to make and they work up fast.
