Next week is Cupcake Princess’s school summer fete. Today the school has had a non-uniform day where each child needs to bring in a tombola prize.
I was away working earlier in the week but yesterday I had a panic about needing to have a prize for the tombola. When I finished work I made a little pinny out of some Amy Butler love fabric that I had left over from CP’s book bag…….it was a quick sewing project so I didn’t add any embellishments or do anything fancy. I thought it came out really well though and would be ideal for a little girl who wants to help her mummy around the house.
Unfortunately I didn’t have a big enough piece of fabric for the back so I had to sew two pieces together.
When CP came home from school I showed it to her and she did love it ……
BUT she then reminded me that this year each class has to bring in a prize in a specific colour theme and her class have to bring in blue or green prizes!! It was time for a rethink.
I didn’t want to spend hours working on another project so I fell back on items that I knew I could make up quickly…….
…….Coasters made from left over Garden Fresh fabric.
…….a simple book bag made from butterfly fabric (what you can’t see was that it was lined with some lovely bright blue flowery fabric).
When Cupcake Princess got up this morning she was really pleased with what I had knocked up….they met with her approval!!
I had to tie a blue ribbon around the bag so that it met the blue theme and also to stop Cupcake Princess from taking the bag for herself!
Now I just have to stop my daughter from trying to win back the prizes next week….she has been known to come home from school events with prizes we have donated!!!
