Perfect packaging part 2

Wow, I've been a little slower than I thought sharing part 2 of this project.  Can I use the excuse that it's just a busy time of the year?

This is the second item that I wanted to show you from my nieces gift.  I made a tote bag to contain her second present. As I mentioned in my previous post I kept the colours the same to tie all her gifts together and keep with the theme.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.

The first packing project I'm going to show you is the largest project at the front.  I had a large item to wrap but wanted…
