My youngest daughter has another birthday party to go to this weekend (what a great social life my kids have - much busier than my own!).
So I made pencil case for the birthday girl (that is the gift of choice for friends this year!)
Its just a basic lined pencil case - with the name appliqued to the front.
I love the blue fabric I used for the name - it's shiny and sparkly (and very messy to sew with!)
But I do love the look of it!
Now we just need to get some pens and pencils etc to fill it up with!
Do you make gifts for birthdays? Do you end up making the same things for all friends each year, then choosing a different gift each year like me? Or do you make something different each time?
