happy birthday goodies

My nephew celebrated his first birthday on Monday--Happy Birthday, Gabriel! Now that the birthday goodies have safely arrived in his hands, I can post the handmade items here. A must-have for a one-year-old in our house is some sort of bag to carry important toys and books. I repurposed fabric from somebody's too-small pants, added ribbon handles, and freezer paper stencilled the "G". Sticking out of the bag are the arms of a long-sleeve shirt from this summer's tie-dyeing frenzy.

Also included in the package were books (of course), a bath toy, and a birthday crown, fit for a young prince.
