Yesterday, I had the wonderful pleasure of spending the afternoon with a very sweet six year old girl. The first thing we did together was make a purse. She completely designed this purse. Choosing the fabric, size, and decorating it with bows. She even had ideas of how she wanted the straps and the pockets to be. I was so impressed with her enthusasm and we had so much fun creating. She told me I'd be a good mom to girls... maybe someday. Or maybe I'll just have to have fun with other people's daughters.
One great thing was that all this fabric was FREE from IKEA. They have a bin filled with small pieces of remnants that they said I could take. The pieces were very small, but not too small to make a purse, apparently. If you are a sewer, check out your IKEA for super fun free fabric.
I'm thinking about taking some of the pieces I have to decoupage a shelf... but that's a post for another day.
