I just found out she got her gift, so I can post this without spoiling the surprise.....
I put together a little package with a fun apron, some cute dipped utensils, and a few odds and ends.
I sewed the apron using this tutorial. They turn out so cute and are easy to make.
|I have tried to turn this picture a bunch of times and it won't turn. Grrrr.....|
The dipped utensils turned out really cute- I just applied painter's tape where I wanted the paint to stop, then dipped them into a bottle of paint. I chose some bright colors for summer. After you shake off the excess paint, just hang them vertically to dry. I used magnet clothespins.
I finished off with some cabochon earrings and some scrapbook paper magnets. I guess these are semi-homemade since I just assembled them- I didn't make them totally from scratch :)
I sure hope she likes them- and I'm excited to see what my pal sent me!
