Tulip Pants Modelled and an Art Folder

I finally got some pictures of DD modelling her Tulip pants - and once she started she didn't want to stop! She is such a crack-up - she had a balloon and was turning this way, and that way. Both DH & I had a camera each and she thought it was hilarious! So here is just one of those pictures :)

DS's best friend is turning 7 very soon, so I was trying to think what we could make him for his birthday. Apparently he likes drawing, so I thought I would try an art folder. I found a few tutorials on the web, but nothing to the size I wanted it, so I made up my own. I must remember next time to make sure there is ample room for all the pencils - I had enough space for the coloured ones, but not for the lead one, so it sits in with the sketch pad.
I used my embroidery machine for the design on the front, and padded the cover with fleece and used some stiff interfacing to make it sturdier. Some of the gorgeous Farbenmix robots ribbon decorates the inside.
I am really happy with it, and I hope that DS's friend is too.

a gorgeous present! I love the embroidery and the ribbon inside is a nice touch. If his friend doesn't like it can I have it??? ;-)
