Ok... the list of things I CAN do does not include figuring out how to put pictures on my blog in the order I intended. Yikes. Please just deal with the fact that they're in an odd order. Thank you.
Introducing my sweet little nephew Cameron's Christmas Present. The felt mail bag. I'm in love with it. Seriously- it was really, really hard to pack it up so he could have it on Christmas morning.
I based the bag on the pattern I found here. She's amazing. I'm jealous of her mad skills and so glad I found this in time to do this instead of making up some not-even-close-to-being-as-cute bag myself. Love.
The whole bag of mail. I'm obsessed with how the red ric-rac looks as the post mark. The hand embroidery for the "addresses" took forever, but it's adorable. I can't wait to make a new letter once we know what Baby Van Allen's name is! P.S. We sister's each have a shorter, easier name for the nieces and nephews. Mo is Morgan. I am Nelly. Now you know.
I love how the lettering looks! You can't see it, but there is top-stitching all around the letters. I also love the little flag. It added so much for under a dollar.
I hope the little guy had a Merry Christmas and that he learns to love his new toys!
