We have had a couple of good friend’s birthdays this month, so I’ve been busy sewing!
For Roma, just turned 7:
His own book bag - with a pencil caddy, and some coloring/learning books.
Turning 7 in Smolensk is a big deal in the public transport world -
you have to pay, now!
Anya, Roma’s mom, bought him his first very own transportation pass!
So, I thought it would be cool for him to have a wallet to carry it in! (along with a little extra cash - a man’s gotta be ready!)
Our friend, Polina, turned 5 this month.
Remember the doll quilt and pillow I made for her?
Well, I liked how Roma’s book bag turned out so much that I decided to make one for Polina, too. . . . along with some pencils in her own pencil caddy, and a great coloring book.
And, last but not least . . .
My crafting buddy, Stacia, is moving far far away. I know a thing or two about moving long distances and limited packing . . . so . . .
I decided to make her a travel wallet!
It’s got places for tickets . . .
Lots of pockets for passports (cause you know she’ll be carrying the whole family’s!)
And, even a little velcro pocket for things you don’t want to fall out!.
I followed this great tutorial to make it.
In case I haven’t said it in the last 5 min . . . I LOVE to sew!
And, making gifts for good friends that are functional and pretty . . .
well, just can’t get much better for this girl!
