In case you missed my last post (which is quite possible with this algorithm 🙄) our family is celebrating St. Nicholas Day this year. We’ve been reading books and watching You Tube videos about Saint Nicholas (the real life man that the legend of Santa evolved from) and tonight they’ll put their shoes outside their doors to receive some goodies in the morning. . I finished up the last of the pouches and filled them with chocolate coins for tomorrow. I’ll also be including clementines (traditional for St. Nick day), a bit of each kids’ favorite candy and one small gift each to place with their shoes. . If anyone is interested, I’ve written up the #freepattern for the drawstring pouch and put it in my Stories. You can find it in the “free pattern” highlight after today. The season IS about giving, after all ☺️
