She loves the beach, so I felt it was a given to use the new Seasonal Stitches: Seashells dies (more specifically, this detailed sand dollar) in Classic Kraft felt on Ocean Tides Felt for the theme. I had picked up this natural jute scalloped trim form Hobby Lobby back in the spring. The perfect accent to stitch in when I sewed the sides of the Coin Purse die together.
I didn't line this one or anything. I felt its main purpose was to hold a gift card. Would work well to hold a special piece of jewelry or a few receipts in her dresser, however.
Hope summer is treating you well! I'm looking around my post release office and thinking I should be doing something to clean it up here at naptime.:)
As for the party...it was a hit. I now have a two year old who apparently is so impatient to taste his birthday cake, he dives in before you have a chance to light the candle. Where does the time go?
