I really WAS going to make a book bag with
WHAT I HAVE!!!
But then I went into Target for a couple of things...
and came out with two kitchen towels!!!
(They were on clearance!)
Perfect fabric to wrap my gift in!!!
It's a baby shower......
and we were asked to bring BOOKS!
Isn't that a great theme???
NEXT TIME....I'll use the fabric in my stash!!!
This was just TOO cute to pass up!!!
Perfect for the new pea in the pod! I love a book shower idea!ReplyDelete
What a great gift and the fabric is too cute to leave at Target Beth!!ReplyDelete
Books are a great idea. The towels show great vision on your part. They made a super book bag.ReplyDelete
I agree, that fabric is just too perfect. Love the idea of bringing books!ReplyDelete
Those are adorable!! I love to look at Target for fabric - I've found some great stuff in their clearance section. And I found some Kate Spain kitchen towels at my Kroger the other day!! Woohoo!! Let's hear it for thinking outside the box!!ReplyDelete
I love the pea pod, towel book bag. I can't believe those were towels. I would have never guessed. The dollar store has some cute tea towels some time I might have to snag some they are truly the right 'weight' to make a light duty bag.ReplyDelete
I have been loving these towels ever since I first saw them at Target! I'll have to check and see if my Target has them clearance now :-)ReplyDelete
i would have had to buy them too! way too cute!ReplyDelete
I see why you couldn't resist! The bag is very pretty, I like the colours.ReplyDelete
I wouldn't have been able to pass up that fabric either! Lesson to be learned: never go shopping!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful theme for a baby shower! I know that after my first son was born, I was SO SICK of reading the 20 or so children's books that I had for him. Now, with son #2, we have so many books that I never tire of reading to them (even though they can both read to themselves now). When are you supposed to stop reading them bedtime stories, anyway? Not for a long while yet, I hope.ReplyDelete
Don't think I could have passed them up either! Love the theme of books for any age party.ReplyDelete
Thanks for becoming a follower!
Enjoy your Sunday.
That's a great looking bag, and the print reminds me of how, when my kids were little, I thought of them as two peas in a pod, because they looked so much alike. Books make great baby gifts, and it's nice to give them a few they'll "grow into" later.ReplyDelete
Hi! Wow those kitchen towels are something! I was thinking how to use mine but can't speak about them in the same day with yours! How great and fun fabric! Also very good idea for a present - books with bag - perfect!ReplyDelete
That is an awesome theme for a baby shower. Love the cute fresh bag.ReplyDelete
I love those peas! And books are the greatest idea for a baby shower. I was at one not long ago where the mother to be received more adorable clothes than one baby could ever wear -- but you just can't have too many great picture books!ReplyDelete
love the "pea in a pod" reference to a baby! Our church threw a books-only shower for our firstborn - it was wonderful. I love that you included a bag as the "wrapping" - so practical and cute.ReplyDelete
