On Monday, I received a phone call from my DD's friend's mother. She is having a surprise party for her DD-last minute! I was told not to tell my DD about the party until I was driving her to it! That way it would hopefully be a surprise! Okay, I can do that! But..... I cannot ask my DD what her friend likes.
I thought about the usual gifts, maybe a gift card(boring) and then I decided to make her something. Summer is approaching (at least where I live) and I thought a pool bag( we live in AZ, so I can't call it a beach bag ;( A new pool season calls for a new towel, too!
Off to the sewing room(yeah) and a bag and matching towel were created! I had to secretly sew and embroider without my DD knowing. If she saw the name "Daly" on this bag she would know that something was up. I had to clean-up all the evidence whenever I was sewing! She does not have a clue.....
Matching Towel, of course...
I purchased the flip-flop fabric from Walmart, but I have also seen it at Joann's. It is a home dec/outdoor fabric.
The striped fabric on the bag is from Joann's and is also a home dec/outdoor fabric! I thought this kind of fabric would be perfect for our AZ sunshine!
The flip-flop appliqué is from http://planetapplique.com/all-appliques/flip-flops-applique/prod_312.html
Love this appliqué!!
Okay, grab the sunscreen! It's pool time!
