A little tidbit

A certain little girl will be turning three this weekend, so I made a little something for her.

Snaps bag for Juliet (outside)

It's pretty much all hand sewn because I tend to understand better what I'm doing when it's my own fingers rather than the machine manipulating the needle and thread. I did sew the lining and outside together by machine though before turning them right side out.

Snaps bag for Juliet (inside)

The outside and inside are quilting cotton prints; the turquoise polka-dot fabric and snaps is the bottom and leg holes of a never-worn onesie that suggested the bag shape to me. The little bow and rickrack are upcycled from a little pair of pants.

That's totally cute. I've been making purses this week too, but they aren't as cute because they're for older folk.

I love that you made it by hand.

Very cute! I'm sure the very cute birthday girl will LOVE it!
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Lara!

Why have I always thought your daughter is so much older than my youngest? He'll be 3 in late May. Her bag is adorable.
