In my desire to live more simply...
I want to stop buying a gift bag or wrapping paper...so how about a beautiful hand made bag that can be reused for so many other things...
We went to this really beautiful fabric store here in our neighborhood The Whole 9 Yards and Maxx picked out the cutest "tweet tweet" fabric, and we had 1 yard of pink ribbon cut for our birthday bag project.
...and today he learned to thread a bobbin. Of course the best part was pushing the pedal at FULL BLAST watching the bobbin fill with thread! I really like that too! ;)
While I continued the sewing...with some pedal pushing help
He worked on the Birthday card and drew a "dancing flower".
...then filled the bag with the birthday surprise.
I just loved how it turned out.
What a special way to give a gift.
Happy fifth birthday, Rachel!
