Birthday presents





As I doubt that my little niece and nephew will be taking a peek at my blog, I'll post their birthday presents I worked on this past weekend. I had so much fun! Trying to follow a pattern is a little like trying to follow a recipe--it takes a little time and patience--but, in the end, it turns out mostly recognizable. I embroidered their names near the bottom of the bags and filled them with coloring books!

How was your weekend?
