Tuesday, May 31

My big girl came home last week and asked if I could buy a gift for her friend's birthday.  After she did some research for me, I found out she likes the colour blue and owls.  I didn't really want to spend a lot of money so I went looking for something simple to make her. 
I found this simple coin purse tutorial I thought would suit a young girl and made it out of some scrap fabric I had at home.

A quick set of hair ties are always a good gift for a girl and
this little owl softie.  I've been wanting to make one for ages.  I think I'll make one for myself too:)
Thanks for stopping by

  7. don't you just love it when you don't bow to the pressure of consumerism...well done that is better than any $20 gift (can you believe that is the norm now - although Tully was given to packets of lollies and a sudoko book .huh? maybe they thought he was an old man!) Well done on that owl, very nice
