Cadeau d'anniversaire!!

I made this little
fabric covered notebook

for my friend's birthday.

I always appreciate
a hand made gift

I was very excited to find
 the pretty Toile fabric
at our Spotlight store!

I like to imagine this is
a picture of
Marie Antoinette
and her friends
in the royal bateau!!

I slipped the notebook
into a little bag
I made from old
dressmaking pattern

Thank you my dear friends for visiting my blog.
I appreciate all your comments and
I really enjoy visiting your blogs too.
Be kind to one another

Tres belle, and such a very kind and personal present. The dressmaking pattern tissue is a great idea. She'll be delighted.

Jan said...

C'est magnifique! I have odds and ends of toile here but would never think of such a gift. You are one clever lady.

Wonderful idea with the bag in tissue paper.

Lucky friend to be on the receiving end of this! I agree that it's so much nicer to receive something handmade...oddly enough my friends rarely gift me with anything like that because they are afraid it won't measure up to my standards (little do they know that I'd MUCH rather have something they've made, with love, than ANY store-bought gift).

Leanne said...

Shane, this is gorgeous!
