I hope they like the colors. I was going to drive over to the fabric store, but it was SO @#%$* COLD and I did already have this fun purple embroidered corduroy. (In a house with three young daughters, it goes without saying that I have pink fabric...) It took me nearly as long to decide what fabrics to use where--and which side of the flap each embellishment should go on--as it did to actually make the things! So, hopefully pink, purple and aqua is OK for these two princesses.
And finally having a pattern certainly speeded? sped? up the cutting process. As soon as I write down directions to go with it, I'll post it somehow. Or maybe a tutorial post would be easier. I didn't take any pictures along the way on these, but sounds like I'll be making another one soon** so I'll document my steps and post my first "tute" shortly.
