I used as a jumping off point/ and sewing inspiration, directions from Modern Quilt Love's box-pouch-tutorial and modified parts of it to accommodate my use of scraps. It's a great little project that you can finish in an hour or 2 especially if you have all your
scraps materials on hand. We plan to fill these with goodies that 13 year old girls would love.
I have a challenge for my small but loyal readership. Leave me a comment about what you would put in these little box bags (they measure 8x3x3), if YOU were giving these to a 13 year old girl as her 13th birthday gift.
BONUS: I will send a little box bag to the person with the best suggestion(s). (You will have to fill it with your own stuff, however). Make sure I can reply to your comment so that I can contact you and let you know how fabulous your suggestions are. If you're feeling generous, tell all your friends to leave some suggestions as well. I look forward to reading what you all come up with. (Suggestions good until May 17, 2011). Thanks for your help!
