Girly Bags IV

One of my colleagues loved the Bracelets and Earrings my daughters (of 8 and 6) made a couple of weeks ago for King's Day and asked if she could buy some of them for her nieces. 

To wrap them up nicely, she asked me to crochet some girly bags. I want to make about eight bags, so she has something to choose from. In a couple of weeks there will be a garage sale in the little village where my brother lives and my daughters have planned to participate with their earrings and bracelets. They can sell the bags my colleague doesn't want, too, and my daugthers can keep all the earnings. I just like it how they learn to deal with money this way. 

The fourth two bags we called Circus and Indian Rose.

Together my daugthers and me made up the 'themes' of the bags, but a basic pattern for the bags you can buy here.

The pattern for the Paisley I found here.

Balancing Elephant

Lots of delivering ladies around here, so I had to make another baby present. My daughter's teacher has gotten a baby boy and my daughter wanted to give him this:




Although buying something would be so much easier for someone I don't know at all, I found this pattern so super cute, I couldn't refuse.
You can find this (free!!) pattern here.

And after we wrapped it up and embellished the packet with stars it still looked nice, according to my daughter. Mission accomplished.
