Birthday giveaway

Last weekend was perfect to be out of the house. The thermometer was showing 24 degrees and all Portugal could have been enjoying the nature. I felt ashamed to stay at home but mother's duty is to be at home and keep sewing. While looking after my sick husband and baby I managed to sew seven little bags for seven little four-year-olds. I was doing this because on Wednesday my older daughter will be four years old and I decided to give my daughter's classmates bags.

I used my seven different children's fabrics and cut the little bags with red lining and handles.

This bag will be for my daughter so that she can put her things like her mobile in it. I bought ladybird buttons to close them.

I chose to put the girls' initial letters on the bags just to make them a little personalized. I got letters from my computer. You can choose any of the fonts on Word. I used little zigzag stitches to sew letters. I do have an embroidery machine but for this specific project I decided to use simple stitches. If you do not have computerized machine as they are called nowadays you can use zigzag or buttonhole stitches.

Girls' presents are ready and tomorrow I will finish boys' presents.
