Kiera’s Birthday Gift

You know, it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to crank something out in one evening. It’s also been a long time since we’ve been invited to a party for a girl. So last night I put together a birthday gift for a young lady and it went together in one night. Nothing new, just an oldie but goodie Little Artist Drawing Case (pattern here) and tote.

The tote went together more quickly because of the straps that I already had in the Random Bag Parts pile. Does anyone else have a pile like this?

The tote is perfect for holding the extra pad of paper that I like to include and some butterfly crayons (instructions for making here). Pardon the horizontal quilting lines – I don’t think little Kiera will mind that they make the bag look 10 pounds heavier.

    What a great present, I love the bag and the drawing case. The project I’m about to start this afternoon is very similar to the drawing case so I was pretty excited to see one as great as yours as inspiration!🙂

    Yep, I’ve got stashes of everything, including bits and pieces of failed projects. You never know when something will come in handy!
