Polka Dot Purses

This past weekend my sweetheart swept me away to Houston to spend some time with him. My dear friend, Sandy volunteered to keep the girls. As I was getting Emma's clothes together I realized that she didn't have an "overnight" bag. All of her bags were big and bulky or just small purses. I decided to whip one up for her. I just did a simple bag with 2 inside pockets and Velcro closure. She loved it and it was just the right size. I think we'll be using this bag a lot.

Emma's polka dots looked so pretty, we decided to use them to make her friend Olivia a purse for her birthday. This happens to be the same fabric Olivia has for her bedding and curtains in her room. I also made her a crayon roll and we included a coloring book. Olivia is getting ready to go to England to visit family. Hopefully this will make the long plane ride easier.
