Emergency Gift

I had a dilemma.  My daughter was invited to a birthday party and pay day was the next day. (Tell me I'm not the only one who has that problem.)

This is where sewing saves the day.  I used Amy's Fat Quarter Bag tutorial.  I whipped it up in thirty minutes (but that includes setting up the sewing machine, the cutting mat, ironing board, and waiting for the iron to hear up).  It was a piece of cake.
I opted for a flat bottom--I liked the way it looked with books in it.  How cool that she got a Dr Seuss book on Dr. Seuss's birthday.

A great quick birthday gift.

Happy creating!
