My Sister's Gift

As I said in my previous post, my little sister is turning 16 tomorrow. She is having a little family celebration on her birthday and then a huge party in April. The party is a Mardi Gras theme and is going to emphasize masks. So in honor of her party, I made her a little canvas tote to carry around and get people excited. Everything is hand stitched, which was a bit of a challenge as I am I new at this. Having said that, I could not be happier with the way it turned out. I am so excited to give it to her, and I know it will mean so much because I took the time to do it myself.


  1. That's awesome! I too have new hand made items to share but I cannot divulge just yet- I'm sending one to my Happy Mail partner so in about a week I will post about it. That is if I can wait!

    When you look at the close-up of the photo you can really tell how much time and love was put into all of that stitching. It looks great.
