For the first time ever, her birthday present from mommy this year is 100% handmade with love. Birthdays for my children have always been a private family affair. We usually celebrate at my parents' place.
Aisha, my sweet girl, she's always at a loss when I ask her what she wants for her birthday. She says she has everything, she doesn't know what else to ask for. My Aisha is a very undemanding, contended little lady and my heart warms up to her. She's so unlike me, her want-it-all mother lol. While browsing the net for bags pattern, she was sitting beside me and suddenly a pretty bag catches her eyes. So I asked her if she'd like me to sew the bag as her birthday gift, she said yes!
So, I purchased the half-moon handbag pattern from keykalou and made her the purse. It is a petite bag, which makes a perfect purse for my girl. She said now she has a purse just like mommy's to bring to the mall :D
Aisha chose the fabric herself from my stash. Her favourite color at the moment is purple. Explains why she was attracted to the bag pattern :)
This is my first purchase of keykalou pattern. I love it! Her designs are really pretty and the instructions are very structured and clear. She also has a blog where she offers tips and guides when making bags which I find very helpful. I also like her taste in sophisticated, vintage inspired fabric print she used in making her bags. Visit her blog here.
All in all, I am glad that this purse is a part of my eldest daughter growing up years. It is my dearest wish that she lives a long and meaningful life, where happiness and smiles never cease. Happy 9th birthday my beautiful girl Aisha...and mommy's so proud of you!
