Her Favorite Color is Green

Before I make a gift for my daughters to give to their friend, I always send them on a reconnaissance mission first - find out the birthday girl's favorite color. 

It makes the gift that much more special.

It also saves me from making EVERYTHING pink.

'Cause you and I both know ... I totally would.

that's it, I'm inviting your girls to Blair's Birthday in March. Oh wait, Ella's is first. I'm sure a 1 year old, or 38 year old man would love one of those (or at least I would!!). Super cute, and your girls friends are so lucky to receive them!

I just love how a sweet, simple project like this takes on its own personality depending on the fabric choice. What little girl wouldn't love one of these?!

Way to go Zorro! This is so pretty! And I really like the ribbon pulls at the ends - great idea! That little eraser is so cute, too!

This pencil case is adorable. Would you mind sharing as to whether it is a pattern available for purchase or if is via an online tutorial?

Thanks so much!
