I thought I'd make her a quilt for her doll, especially since Briahna LOVES all her's, so I made one or two (or four!). I got a little carried away with how fun they are to make.
And then, when Briahna came home from school and told me Holly doesn't like dolls - I had to think of something else to make her. Needless to say, some of these doll quilts will be up in my etsy store in the next couple of days!!! I decided to try making one of chickpea's everything pocket bag's. I've been wanting to make one for ages!!!
A little chickpea sewing studio
Filled up with coloured pencils, I think it makes a great gift. What do you think?
I'm trying really hard to be thrifty and wise with our money lately, and so handmade gifts are my choice to make a better world. :)
No Spend Challenge...
I have a confession to make. I feel a little like Rebecca in Confessions of a Shopaholic, but at least my spending didn't go on the credit card!
I was naughty yesterday and went to Spotlight after they enticed me in with a spend $100, get $40 off voucher. I couldn't resist the temptation and bought lots of fabric, some embroidery threads, and some more neat bees wax crayons for crayon wraps! I managed to get the quilting fabric for Hope's 13th birthday quilt for under $30 for the top, and it's great! :D So, whilst I did fall over on my no spend challenge see sidebar it was all for a good cause!
