Today my firstborn is 14. Happy birthday, sweet girl!
It’s appropriate that today’s Things are gift bags. They’re not for Martina, mind you. But still.
Using scraps left over from Martina’s summer pyjama set, I cut out 15 pairs of squares and rectangles in various sizes. Then I figured out an assembly-line method that cut down the time per bag to a few minutes.
I finished each one off with organza ribbon from the stash.
Martina used one for a gift for a friend who has a birthday tomorrow, but the rest are for our jewelry sale on Saturday. I spent a couple of hours making jewelry today, and now I have something pretty to wrap it all in.
