Drew's Birthday

We went to a great birthday party today at build a bear for Alexis's friend Drew. Drew's mom is also a SU demonstrator and I wanted to have some fun with the gift for him.

I started at the fabric store. I picked out some fleece for my teddy bear (Alexis tried to claim it as her new blanket). I found some jean material, and some material that looked like something Drew would wear.

First, I ironed "no sew" on to the back of all my fabric pieces. I cut all the pieces out with the sizzix, big shot machine and then ironed them on to the bag. Behind the bears face is a circle of dark fabric, also ironed on. It was simple and fun and I did it with my daughter.

I got a lot of nice comments at the party. I hope Drew likes his new tote bag.

Drew (and his Mama) loved the bag. The card was way too cute as well! I hope you all had fun. I know we did :-) Thanks again!!
