Harriet and Julie's Birthday totes.

Today is my Niece Harriet's 8th Birthday, I mentioned time flying in my last post, but I really cannot believe she is 8 it has gone so fast!! She is a little angel who I am very close to (and her two sisters) I wonder how much longer that will be for, she is growing up so much!!! I am not sure I was so grown up at 8.
She has had a terrible day today bless her, she has been at home all day with a tummy bug, my sister also has the same, they both started at about 1am and it has gone on all day xx
I went out to see her and my poor sister was not at all well, my Mum took the two youngest home with her for a few hours and I sat with Harriet whilst Teresa went to bed to try and get some sleep. We sat watching a film together and she said "I'm having a lovely birthday" I asked why and she said it was nice to just sit and watch a movie quietly with me. Ah bless her!!! I do love her!
I have become addicted to making little tote bags, as I made one for my sister a few weeks ago Harriet really wanted one so I have done a similar thing for her with a little pic of JLS in as her real pressie is a ticket to go and see them in July.

The papers are printed from the CD which came with the Do Crafts Mag a couple of months ago. Post it note holder with a pen holder on the side and a little pen which I manged to buy a set of three in Smiths for these as other pens are too big. JLS pic mounted onto board covered with dotty paper as bag, I have added a little bit to the back so she can stand this on her shelf in her bedroom. Purse is part of the tote bag template so I made it up and put £1 in it. Hello Kitty Mirror, lip gloss and bangle from H&M. All three of the girls are crazy about Hello Kitty and we are all constantly looking for things for them that they haven't already got.

She was very pleased with her bag and kept picking it up and looking at it/putting on lip gloss all afternoon.

Today is also my very good friend and work colleague Julie's birthday. I made her a bag too:

Here it is:

I put a mascara, body spray, nail file and a small notepad and pen in this one for her. I try to put things in so they are similar to items we would have in our handbags. Julie was over the moon with this bag and I was really pleased that she liked it so much.

I haven't yet uploaded the pic of Harriet's card so I will post when I have done that. I gave Julie a card I made a couple of weeks ago which I have posted already.

Thanks for looking!
