This adorable project
has been all over my RSS reader this week, and for good reason! It’s simple, cute, and uses stuff you probably already have on hand… all hallmarks of my favorite projects! I especially LOVE the use of bracelets for handles – genius! Leigh Ann from The Object Project has an interesting blog, too. She says her blog is all about sharing her “adventures in sewing, using unconventional patterns.” She invites you to comment with an object, and she’ll come up with a project to match it. I love it!

This would be a super fun thing to make for a goody bag for a princess or dress up birthday party!
