Birthday Bags

Think of them as reusable birthday bags for the birthday girl. These are the bags that Madelin gave to two different friends for their birthdays. Each canvas bag (purchased in a package of 3 from Hobby Lobby), plus fabric easily cost less than $4-$5. All of the bags were Madelin's ideas with the addition of my craftiness! :) We then put gift inside the bag. I made the bags using craft glue and then sewed around the outside. Madelin gave this bag to her friend, Trinity.
Close-up of the heart. Unfortunately, you can see the glue spots under the yellow heart...oops!! Needless to say, it was a lesson learned!
The other side of the bag. Madelin and Trinity are big peace sign fans!
I used felt for "Izzy." The other side. Madelin told me that Izzy likes green, okay?! :) I love the mind of a 6-year-old!
Cupcake close-up...felt frosting, felt cherry with green floss stem and beads for sprinkles. To make the cupcake holder I used my favorite brown/light brown fabric, cut it out with pinking shears and then stitched around it with brown floss. Yummy!
I'm still trying to decide if I should make bags for boys??
