Squeee! Look what I made!

I finished my first Christmas Gift yesterday, for my 4 (almost 5) year old niece, and I'm ridiculously proud of it. It turned out SO cute!

The purse part is made from fleece that I found in the remnant bin, and the applique is made from felt. My niece LOVES frogs, so I looked up pictures of tree frogs on google, and modeled my little felt frog from that.

I'm so happy with how it turned out, and I hope she loves it. This handmade Christmas is already off to a better start than the last.
Fleece remnant: $1.18
7 colors of felt: $1.75, I used only a tiny bit of each, so I'll say $0.50
Buttons: $2.25 for a pack of 50. I used 7 so $0.35
Total cost: $2.03, plus 2.5 hours it took me to finish it. :)


  1. OMGosh...How cute is that. I hope your talking about Ashlee cause she would just flip over that one....Oh how cute...Nice work Auntie!!!!

  2. Of course it's for Ashlee! :) That's why I had to put the frog in there. It's a kermit that will never turn brown!

  3. Awesome!! I love it! I just got a sewing machine and I made my first baby blanket a couple of weeks ago!!! :-) I am so proud!
