A homemade Girls Present - Bag and Purse with Beads

MaxiMad was off to a birthday party on Saturday and we only got the invite on Tuesday.  With me being in hospital I have not had the chance to go out and find anything suitable and I only have presents suitable for boys in our stash at the moment.

So I had a chat with Maxi Mad and we decided to make a small drawstring bag and a purse and fill it with lovely wooden beads and elastic for making bracelets and such.

We also stamped her name on with permanent fabric ink, for the personal touch.  He came in to the study and picked which fabric he liked for her and helped me stamp the name, so was involved in it all and here is the finished version.

I hope she likes it.  I am thinking of making the same for my nieces and the other girls we buy for at Christmas.

this is lovely. So wonderful the boys are involved with present choosing / making - it's not easy.

That is so sweet. What little girl (and big girl) wouldn't like that?

What a fab present, I bet she loves it. Aren't you clever for making such a unique gift in such a short space of time? said...

Love this idea! But you're brave with zippers. I do anything I can to avoid them, but a bit of practice would do me good.

Very cute! You may have posted this before - I am a new reader of the blog - but I would love to see some tips on getting a crafty stash set up - what are basics, how do you store, etc. : )
