My awesome friend, Melinda (who is blogging now!!. Yes, I know. It only took me three years of constant harping!) is celebrating her birthday today. I really didn't want to just buy her a gift. I needed it to be something more.
Enter the love of my life, Orla Kiely.
At Target last week, I found a 50% off tablecloth. I should have bought more of them. I'm thinking I might want a skirt.
I used the free Buttercup Bag Pattern from Made by Rae. Totally simple! Totally perfect!
I'm told that Melinda immediately ran out and bought a new outfit to match. (What a way to make my head grow bigger! I was secretly hoping she'd hate it so that I could keep it for myself and go buy her a generic gift. Darnit!)
