Some of my go-to gift ideas:
: A favorite book with personalized book plates (so great for emerging readers like K and 1st graders)
: A favorite craft book with accompanying supplies
: A nice journal with personalized pencils
You get the drift.
These bags are incredibly rudimentary but that's the level of seamstress I am right now (and I'm so ok with that that I am even posting it for you all to see. Baby steps, my friends.).
And since my little helper was somewhat fascinated with the process and allowed me to complete these, I whipped up a quick bag for him to stash his crayons in. It seemed like a win-win.
