My expectant daughter-in-law asked if I could sew a valance for her. She bought some fabric to match the crib bumpers she purchased. I asked to see the picture and then set to work.
I love a good challenge!
She wanted it streamlined; very tailored with no ruffles.
I whipped off a little bookbag purse for a friend's child.
I am always careful to make something that isn't Christmas-y because that happens a LOT when you have a December birthday! they do like to go to the beach a lot some I put one of my resin/sea glass charms on the zipper pull with some beads.
Something to use all year round!
