Birthday Gift Bag

Hello, this past weekend I attended a birthday party for my childhood friends little girl.  I have to admit one thing right now...I dispies buying wrapping paper and bags...its such a waste! Seriously, they rip it to shreds and then we just put it in the garbage. I need to find a better way for wrapping I made a flannel lined goodie bag (aka drawstring bag).

The overall measurements are 8x8 inches.  I used a pretty yellow fabric and lime green accents (the initial and the ribbon).

I filled the bag with a gift card to a famous T store and a couple LPS that she likes. I figured after her birthday she could keep her favorite LPS in there.  (And in case you didn't know what LPS is, they are Littlest Pet Shops)
After cutting the fabric and sewing together I cut  the M out and ironed it on to the bag.
Flannel lined (those are the LPS-aren't they cute (they are really like bobble head animals))

All filled and ready to be given away!
