Remember that cute purse I made for my niece a few months ago? Well, I slightly modified that concept and made a knit pouch for a little girl named Sarah, and I can’t wait to give it to her! Sarah is in second grade at a school back in Tulsa, and I enjoyed visiting her every week to mentor her.
The kids at this school are so precious, but they don’t have a lot (some don’t even have heat in the winter). My church recently did a gift drive for these kids and they all were given a Christmas present to enjoy. I really look forward to taking a trip back home this week to give her this gift and love on her.
To let you know briefly how I made it: I used a knit stitch throughout and sewed some fabric on the underside to line it. Then I put on a snap closure. Then I turned it inside out and hand-sewed the sides. I finished it with a mini fabric flower and a cute heart button.
And of course I’m stuffing it with little goodies!
So friends, as the holiday approaches, be mindful of someone you might be able to give some love and cheer to that really needs it most.
