first, my tomboy princess decided to crochet a bracelet for her friend. she did pretty well. she even crocheted beads into it! so proud of my crocheting protege.
back to the birthday girl. as with most little girls, she likes horses. that's handy, i can draw a horse. she also likes to read, you would think i would have made a bookmark then wouldn't you. no way! that's too easy!
instead, i made a book bag. could have been super simple. . . until i got ahold of it.
pant leg, stitch the end closed and add a handle. . . . . but then i had this big idea . . .
protect the back of the stitching.
