When In Doubt, Give Them What They Want

Birthday Gift for Nicole

This gift is a birthday gift for my sister-in-law. When I gave my sister her pleated beauty bag last Autumn my sister-in-law dropped some serious hints that she might also like a similar gift. Her favorite color is pink so the choice of fabric was easy and the denim makes it a little more durable. Her style is a little bit preppy so I’m hopeful this will suit her. The N was hand embroidered — those are french knots people, a whole lot of them — and I am so happy with how it turned out.

    Way to go! Those french knots must have taken a while. I think it is preppy chic. I like the color combination, too. Good work.

    You have got some lucky family members around you, dear.

    It’s beautiful! I love French knots. Filling chunks of bare space with them is kind of hypnotizing in its repetitiveness.

    That is a very nice gift… she’d be crazy not to love it!

    it is beautiful! I think I have some of that fabric in my stash…so pretty and pink. and yes, I think the bag is just the right amount of preppy. if she doesn’t like it, I know someone who would. 😉
