The first birthday party of the year is in a few days, so I had to think of something new to make for my daughters' friends again this year.
This time I made a small bag and matching notebook cover. I used my bag tutorial here and my notebook cover tutorial here.
This year I'm focusing using what I've got - so making the most of the 100+ tutorials I've already made!
Of course you know I love upcycling, so thought I'd use an old pair of jeans for some of the fabric - and matched it up with other fabric from my stash.
The bag turned out really cute..
I used a notebook from a stash of them I bought in the January sales, and included a pen in the jeans pocket on the front.
The notebook just slips into the cover, so once it's used up it can be replaced with a fresh one.
Hope the girl likes her birthday set!. I think I'm going to make up a few to have prepared for upcoming birthdays - and will add them to my Madeit shop in the meantime.
What are you making for birthday gifts this year?
