My seven year old daugher is invited to her friend's birthday party this weekend and I just whipped together a handmade gift for the birthday girl. The birthday girl can use this little bag for any occasion, however, my daughter uses her bag as a pencil case. It's pretty roomy inside; it can hold more than 30 pencils and pens. The handles are fully lined so it's sturdy, too.
I also made these pony tail holders using the matching fabric in covered buttons. By the way, this pink poodle fabric is a Japanese fabric of linen and cotton. I hope the girl likes the gift!
