Boredom Buster Bags (I hope!)

Oh, I have been quiet lately!  I didn't mean to be, sewing and crafting have just taken a back seat the last few weeks while final wedding preparations are underway- 5 days and counting!!  I did do a little sewing today though, so I thought I would share the gifts I am giving my two little cousins who are my flower girls. 

Many thanks to for the adorable appliques!  This alphabet set was on sale for $8, however when I logged on Sunday to purchase it they were running a special and if you spent $5 you received this alphabet as a free gift- what perfect timing!

The files stitched up beautifully...

and I LOVE the little hemstitch around the flower. 

On the back I stitched "Flower Girl" and the date, just for a nod to the occasion.

I was having trouble figuring out what to give the girls and finally decided to choose a few things to help them stay busy over the weekend in the hotel or even at the reception.  I found a Disney Princess wedding paper doll set so they each got that, along with a Color Wonder coloring book (so they can't get anything on the borrowed tablecloths :) with sparkle pages, and travel tanagrams (because I had them when I was little and loved them).  Hope the girls enjoy their presents.


  1. Great idea for the bags and the labels are very nice!

  2. Very cute presents!
