Our family of five each drew a name to find out who we should make a gift for this holiday season. Here’s what happened.
- Pip picked Mercedi.
- Mercedi picked Mom.
- Mom picked Capri.
- Capri picked Papa.
- Papa picked Pip.
Everyone was really happy with who they got and who had them…we didn’t keep it a secret since we had to know who Pip had anyway (she’s 2). Cedi was really excited until you could see her smile waiver just a little as she realized that all Pip could pretty much do was color in a picture…sort of. She held that smile regardless and insisted she was excited.
I couldn’t just let Pip color a picture for Cedi so instead we did a little bit of ‘15 minutes of play’ together. I let her at one of my scrap bins and she picked the fabrics she wanted me to sew together. Before we knew it – we had the outside portion of a kindle case put together for Cedi! She then picked out the two fabrics for the insides of the bag and hung out patiently while I did the manual labor.
Voila! We had a fun new case/bag for Cedi’s kindle! Just full of Pip’s love! AND it was really fun for me to sew and create with Pip at my side! To top it off – Cedi loved it!!!
