Gift for a little girl

My lovely friend has a little girl who’s a bit over two and I wanted to come up with a small gift for her for Christmas. Now I only have one kid and he’s a boy and he’s a year younger. I’m also quite unfamiliar with what kids like and at what age. I hope what I came up with is a good idea because I don’t know!

Here it is for you to judge for yourself.

It’s a purse that’s fully reversible and big enough to put a couple of books in. I had to try to remember what I liked when I was little and I loved girly things, and if there was a nifty gimmick to it, even better.

One side is a soft pink flannel chevron print with a bird appliqué, and the other side is a sweet little cotton floral print with a navy gingham snap pocket.

It only took me about an hour and a half to make and I was super pleased with the outcome. I looked over this tutorial quickly to see how to go about it and just cut 2 same size rectangles out of each fabric and sewed them up and put it all together! It was a breeze to make and I hope it gets toted around and filled with lots of fun things!

    Love this little tote bag and certain that my daughter will too! She loves purses and this one just so appropriate. Cute little bird, fabric so soft, reversable, washable and a nifty little pocket to hide stuff in…not to mention that it is custom made with love! Thank you Ali!!! I can’t wait to bring this home to her tonight! <3
