Yesterday, our 10 year old daughter came back from school with an invitation card to her friend's birthday party. She was so excited about the party, which also made me happy, until I figured out that the party was scheduled the next day (which is, oh boy, today!)
So last night after the kids went to bed, I quickly whipped up this small pouch with handles for the birthday girl. The birthday girl's favorite color is green (according to my daughter) so I chose green polka dots fabric, along with the cheerful strawberry fabric that I think is perfect for this spring season.
The pouch will be used as a pencil case (most likely).
The handles and the inside are bright pink.
My daughter joyfully left for her friend's party just now. And I was so glad that I was able to finish up the gift by this morning. Few! Now, I just hope the girl likes the gift :)
Such a sweet and lovely pencil case! I am sure the girl was happy to get this present for her birthday.
Did you use a batting between the outer fabric and the lining?
Thank you, PY! Yes, I used a fleece batting in-between the two fabrics when making this pouch. The fleece batting adds a soft feel to the pouch, as well as the protection for whatever is placed inside the pouch.
And according to my daughter, today's birthday girl seemed to like the handmade gift (which made both myself and my daughter happy :)
Lovely, chick chick! Aren't pink and green gorgeous together? I bet the girl loved her gift :-)
Sam, you're right. Pink and green go gorgeous together. It's such a happy combination :)
