Little Bag of Goodies for Cassidy
Cassidy's birthday is coming up on Tuesday. I've been picking up a few things for her here and there over the past month and this is one little thing I put together for her. See, I saw these adorable bags on the Homespun Living blog (see side bar) and I wanted to try to make one. Through a lot of trial and error (lots of error) I now think I know how to make a decent one. You would think it would be easy, but the knitted bottom, with making the outside one piece kinda threw me off. My measuremetns were way off and I ended up having to cut my knitting (steeking). That's the first time I ever did that and I'm thankful I tried it on a small project. Not hard, but oh, so scary! Anyway, the bag's measurements are horrible; too long and skinny, but I didn't want to throw it out, so I made it into a little bag for Cassidy. I don't think she'll pick up on my mistakes! I tucked in small bottles of Bath and Body Works shower gel, a pink shower puff, and a hair brush.
Another little thingee I made for her was a starfish zippered bag with a little starfish charm hanging off the zipper. Real cute. I wrapped it before I took a pic. Inside I tucked in some pretty nail polishes and nail stickers. Turning the grown up age of nine, you know...
Well, we'll be off for nearly a week at the beach. I'm looking forward to the relaxation and family fun. I think we all need to get away. I'll catch up with y'all when I get back.
