Island Auntie’s birthday is coming up so I sewed her a little bag that will give her a preview of fabrics that I am using for her baby quilt. I slightly altered a pattern from Amy Karol‘s Bend the Rules Sewing book–which is an excellent book with lots of practical, fun and simple sewing projects. I think I might put some quarters in the bag. One quarter to mark each year of her life, perhaps? That would mean parting with a whopping $7.50. Maybe I need to bake some cookies too, or at least buy some chocolate. Happy Birthday Island Auntie!
