P is for PATRICK

One of my nephews turned 5 a couple of weeks ago.  He requested that I make him a "P" shirt.  So, I did :)
Made with his 2 favorite colors :)

I also made him a monster bag so he can put all of his "treasures" in it when he goes on walks.  It's just the right size for rocks, worms or whatever else he may find.

The bottom is made of window screen so dirt can fall out or little critters can breathe :)
And, this little peek~a~boo bag.


All of the handmade gifts were a hit!  I love being able to make my nephews gifts.  Especially knowing how much they enjoy them.

You may remember the first peek~a~boo bag I made for a neighbor (you can see pics here).  This one is much smaller, about 7"x 9", with the vinyl window about 3"x 4".  Great size for his Gogos. I was short on time so I used ribbon from my stash for the casing and some cording for the tie.  If you would like to make your own you can find the tutorial by Make It Perfect here.

Hope you have a marvelous Monday!

Smiles,
Beth
