birthday present


Tomorrow Annie has a birthday party to attend. One of her preschool buddies is turning 5 and I am trying to make as many gifts as I can. So by combining a bit of this great birthday gift idea from Amy at Angry Chicken with a little bit of this adventure and throwing in a little sewn monogram tote you get a pretty nifty little gift. Tell me what ya think, one may be headed your way this holiday season.


Here is the little "A" bag. I used corduroy and some fabric I bought last spring.


In the bag is a paper bag with blank clothes pins, fabric scraps, ric-rac, ribbon, etc. I drew up some quick instructions and that's it. Annie and Maddie loved making the little dolls and this gift is for Annie's preschool teachers daughter so I think they will enjoy making them also.

I'm not sure if I should add a little bottle of glue and markers or if it works as is. What do you all think?

Well hope you are all having a great thanksgiving weekend. I am off to work soon and Dan is dropping the girls off at Grandma and Grandpa's for the night so he can play cards. They are sleeping over so I may get to sleep past 7:00 a.m. tomorrow. I may just give thanks for that by going out for a drink after work tonight.
