So it seems like that time of year where there’s a lot of birthday parties to go to! I think it’s a fun opportunity to have fun with my girls and let them pick out and work on a project that their friend would like. I’ve been doing a bit of spring cleaning with my stash and have a big stack of cute kids fabric to use up, so I have another project in the works, but I’ll share that in another post. With what I had leftover from the big stack, I used to make a few birthday presents!
Natalie and Emily helped pick out the fabrics for their cousin’s birthday presents. It’s pretty fun to have cousins that are twins! I thought it would be great to have a little zippered pouch they could hang on their backpack and stash a few little things for summertime. We tucked in a couple gift certificates and some golden dollars! Perfect for buying ice cream we hope!
And no birthday would be complete without a drawstring bag. I quickly sewed up this one for a friend’s party. I love how the bags use smaller cuts of fabric! It’s great for mixing and matching and just plain fun. Of course I couldn’t stop with just one, so I made the laundry size bag for our family. It’ll be great to pack in our suitcase to store dirty laundry. I’m sure it’ll fill up quick!
