Goodbye present


Just a quick post to show off the little goodbye present M. made last night for a classmate who's moving to the other side of the world over the Christmas break. She made a couple of these last year for her Californian girlfriends (pictures below). It's an easy craft for little hands with not too much sewing involved. The felt zippered purse we still had (I got a bunch of these last year at "Le Pain d'Eipces", one of my favorite toy and craft stores here in Paris). The decoration, however, is from M.'s hand. She chose the felt flower, the fabric in the middle and a matching button, things I keep at hand for small projects like this one. All she had to do was to sew on the button, the rest being caught underneath. She embroidered the stem and leaf, and ready! This project took only about half an hour (designing included), but I think it looks really cute.
Oh, and the painting underneath is one H. made: a mandala, colored in with the watercolor paint Sinterklaas brought. I think this one will make it to our kitchen wall...

Some of last year's little purses...
