Easter Gift - Notebook Bags

I saw something like this in a store and resolved to make a bag like that for my girls...

See... in the summer the childrens ministry has a break and the children join the parents for the main service. This is a great opportunity for them, but i have rules for my girls. (told you im a mean mom) In the service the last 2 years they had notebooks where they would either write or draw what they hear from the sermon. The girls actually do a great job, you should see the picture of King Nebuchadnezzar!

Now they can go to church with something fun, and organized. They no longer will have to fight over colors or pencils as they will be totally prepared!

Each girl chose their favorite fabric... I chose the applique i did on them. 2 of the fabrics were from my dear friend!! I know the centers look awful, but i couldnt figure out what to do with them. Progressively each one was better done as I learned about what i was doing! LOL.

Please leave a comment about what you think?

Suprise Stash!

A dear dear friend of mine (maker of my i-spy quilt) sent me a stash of fabrics! I opened up the box and spread all of the fabrics on the floor so i could lovingly adore each one and think of many ideas for them.

My daughters were excited, they were quick to tell me their favorites.
Sabryna liked the Oranges: 

Angelique liked the green "wet picture":

Zoey liked the ones with GOLD in them:

I couldnt chose a favorite, but i was a bit sad the mug rug swap for the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild happened already. My partner loves Giraffe's and i couldnt find one for her!

Now off to do an easter project!!!
