:a birthday present for an 8 year old:

I sometimes find it hard to buy presents for the girls school friends since starting a new school there are some we don't know that well.  I am trying this year to make at least one hand made item in the birthday parcels.. 
I went to Spotlight yesterday and found this gorgeous material in the furnishing section.


So I thought it would make a great little bag as a gift for the birthday party tomorrow.



I put the birthday girls name on it for something special..


The back of the bag is just as cute....



and I used the bottom blue strip for the handle as it was the perfect size..
I am thinking there is lots to make with this fabric...
NB: the eyes on the little Japanese girl don't look as evil as they do in these photo's.
