I stole this idea from Laurie B. ... I bought stools from JoAnn's and painted them as gifts for 2 little boys.
These are some bags I made as graduation gifts for my sweet OT friends. My mama monogrammed them on her new machine. (Since she got a new sewing/monogramming machine she let me have her old one. Yay!)
I had a lot of fabric left over from the bags, so I made a dress for my niece.
And, I made her a stool for her 1st birthday. Thanks Laurie for sharing this idea!
