In a few hours' time I will be helping my daughter host a sleepover for her birthday. She has invited three of her friends and in a moment of madness, and a desire to use up some of my enormous stash of fabric, I decided to make sleepover bags for them all.
Owls appear to have become the unofficial theme and I tried to do as quick an applique embellishment as I could. It might be just me but using felt in applique always feels like cheating!
I had a great time searching out the fabric.
But my favourite part has to be the button eyes. Who would have thought that buttons could be so expressive. This looks like a very sleepy owl. Here's hoping that by 10pm I will have four very sleepy girls!!!!
Any excuse to make cupcakes and absolutely any excuse to use pink icing!
Wish me luck! :-)
