a little drwastring bag for a present

Earlier this summer we received a great news:
Toddler K (previously know as Baby K!) is going to be a big sister!
I am going to be an aunt for the second time!



So while we were in France, we purchased a little PJ from a nice boutique,
since we did not know the baby's gender, we went with a classic grey color and a soft cloud collar.
We just found out it will be a little boy, the PJ will be perfect.


I could not send this little PJ just by itself,
so I sewed a little drawstring bag, using this pattern from In Color Order.
Over the last couple of years, I made quite a few of them,
they are perfect for gift-giving or laundry bags!


For this occasion, Peter Rabbit fabric was my first choice!
But I chose to not choose the part of the fabric with Peter,
instead I used the other characters like Benjamin Bunny and Squirrel Nutkin.
To complement the pictures, I also used some aqua gingham, some white on white cotton for the inside,
and a satin ribbon that perfectly matches Benjamin Bunny's hat.



Happy sewing!
