Here is what I made last night for **Friday Night Sew In – more Hello Kitty gifts for our niece Gabby who turns 6 next month. I am so proud of myself for getting something done way ahead of time! Her birthday is about 5 weeks away. I made a pencil pouch based on this tutorial but extended the length to accommodate a standard pencil I had laying around but it’s still a little tight fit they have to lay in there sideways. Maybe once they are used they will fit better.
Then, I made a simple little tote bag that is reversible. I got this Hello Kitty fabric at Wal-Mart a few months ago, it’s not the best quality but not the worst either. I hope she will like it; I just realized that I am a year late with the Hello Kitty…my sister informed me that was ‘last year’s party’ this year it’s all about ladybugs! Oh well. At least she will have something made with LOVE and not just something I picked out at the store, right?? This goes along with the Hello Kitty Softie I made last week and I found a Hello Kitty coloring book at Michael’s this week too.
My friend Stephanie and I were going to hang out at her house last night for Friday Night Sew In but we decided to hang out today for a Saturday Sew instead! So as soon as I finish this post, I plan to get my stuff together to do over there. The guys will hang out as well and we will grab a bite to eat for dinner too. Looking forward to it as we haven’t all hung out together since last month and we can only go so long without it. HA
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!! I’ll be sharing at some of the following link parties.
