Sew Much Fun!

I recently got together with some of my creative friends for another Craft Night. We made these super cute hobo bags! Unfortunately, I am not a sewer, so my only contribution was cutting and ironing the fabric. I'm thinkin' I could whip one out pretty quick with a hot glue gun but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't hold up as well as sewing it ;-)

Here's pics from our fun night...

My finished bag...

And here's a few recipes from the snacks we brought...

Cheese Ball
Submitted by Nicole

1 block cream cheese
1/2 pkg grated mild cheddar cheese
1-2 tbsp ranch dressing
1 cup chopped pecans, divided
1 small can black olives, drained and chopped

Combine all ingredients. Set 1/2 the pecans aside. You really have to use your hands to get this mixed well. When well combined, form into ball. Roll in remaining pecans. Serve with crackers or raw veggies.
If it's a larger crowd, this doubles easily. Keeps well in fridge up to a week, so it's great for making ahead. Enjoy!

16 oz sour cream

10 oz frozen spinach
Small can sliced water chestnuts

Combine mayo, sc and soup mix. Add spinach and diced water chestnuts.
