my creative space - birthday girl
My beautiful niece, who turns 9 on Sunday, is also a maker. She rises early to craft cardboard castles, chocolate cake and dressups. She has the bug. Sadly she doesn't live close enough that I can craft with her, so I thought the next best thing would be a sewing/knitting kit made with love, in a little lined pouch/bag whipped up in the 40 degree heat we've been having round here. Made with a postal deadline I didn't get a great picture of it, but you get the idea. It is finished with my first machine buttonhole on the newish Janome. Yay! I feel a bit like a craft pusher but I know she'll love it and I can't wait to see what she makes.
Do you have the crafty gene? Who did you inherit it from and have you passed it on?!
