homemade birthday gifts

Whenever a birthday rolls around I try and think of a gift I could make for them, rather than buy. On Saturday it was my nieces birthday and she loves to draw and she wanted a "Diamond Party". None of really knew what that meant, but this is what I came up with. I thought it turned out pretty cute. The rinstones on the colored pencils was actually an idea I saw on Etsy. Got to love Etsy.

Now she can carry her colors where ever she goes. It closes with a snap, I realized that is hard to see in the pictures.


  1. That is way cute. Nick's step mom made something similar to this for my kids on Christmas to hold their crayons. They thought it was the coolest thing ever!

  2. stop the maddness! it is impossible for one to be so freaking cute. stop it debbie, youre going to explode. or make me explode.

  3. Wow! That's sooo cute! Looks like its store-bought!

  4. I like handmade stuff!! Lovely bag you have received as birthday gift... It's so cute and beautiful...

  5. I saw we shared the same name (I was on SHales blog) so I thought I'd come over and say hi.

    I love this bag. Did you use a pattern or just visualize it? I'd love to make/get one for my daughter.
