FO Friday

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!


  1. I am a "no-frill" person myself, so I understand your DIL totally:) and I love the funky coloured bag you made - after many weeks of green/red/gold I long for strong colours like pink and yellow! or maybe it's the grey weather (with some snow!) outside? anyway, right now I could to with some pink/orange/turquoise instead:)

  2. VERY cute the little sea glass charm.

  3. THat is an awesome NON Chirstmasy gift
