This has been one busy July. It seems like every day we have something to do. Along with play dates and outings and errands, we have many many Birthdays this month.
I felt I needed a new project to celebrate this fact (and something to give to all of those celebrating Birthdays).
Look at what I found!
I love the internet. I really do. I cannot remember a time when it didn’t exist (and I’m not that young). It makes making things so much easier. It connects people with other people who can show them how-to’s with the click of a button, any time of day- or night (which is when I often find myself looking for new ideas).
My older daughter has a Birthday to go to this weekend for a boy from her class. He is such a dear friend to her, and they get along so well. I wanted to make something for him. The only problem is that I have NO idea what young boys like
to receive as gifts. Clueless. So when I found this tutorial, I jumped on it. It makes a great pencil/ treasure pouch. With it, I also made him a library bag. Something to carry his books. He and my daughter both volunteer there to read to younger kids, so I thought it was a good idea.
Here it is, zipper and all. I am so proud.
One Birthday taken care of- only 10 more to go!
