The holidays are always a whirlwind of projects for me and I’m sure many of you as well.  All year I promise myself that I’m going to start early and get my cards made and out of the way so that I can get some sewing done as well.  Ha! throw that plan out because I don’t think It will ever happen that way for me.  But I’m really ok with that.  I enjoy being asked for personalized items that although they take more time, I know the person receiving it will enjoy it so much that it makes it all worth it.

A friend asked for a small overnight bag for her 4 year old daughter who visited family on the weekends.  Her favorite colors are pink and purple and her favorite cartoon is Doc McStuffins.  I took the challenge on and came up with this cute small duffle bag that I made with a Butterick pattern.  It was such a joy to make this bag with all of a little girls favorite things.  The bag is lined with a pink cotton with silver tiaras and I chose a lovely font and ironed her name on the back of the bag in purple.  Since she is receiving this as a Christmas gift, I couldn’t help putting a Doc McStuffins coloring book and a box of crayons in the bag for the little princess to color while she’s away for the weekends.


I used my Silhouette to print and cut the name and image for the bag.
