It was time for me to figure out my prize for this month's Bunco Night. These prizes can not exceed $5 and can be anything from a gift card, to a handmade item to something you bought at the store. I decided this month it was going to be a handmade gift (with a surprise inside) and I had found the perfect idea in this great little book from my library called Pretty Little Cozy's. This book along with many of the other Pretty Little series contain a number of fun, simple, and useful projects for the sewing enthusiast!
The "cozy" I chose to make is a Keychain/Card Cozy that you can use when you run those quick errands to the store or head out to the gym. You don't want a big bulky purse so this little "cozy" is perfect. I love how it turned out and since this one is a gift, I'm now going to have to make another one for myself. I hope you enjoy taking a look at some of my project photos and perhaps you'll want to make a cute little "cozy" of your own.

Now, I'll go pick up the "surprise" that's going inside my little "cozy"......this gift is certain to be a hit at tomorrow night's Bunco game!
