Two more days for X'mas...
I have this friend that has two boys & 8yr-old girl.
I originally bought movie tickets for their x'mas gifts, but today, two days before x'mas, my DH said "that's what they're gonna get for x'mas?"
(he always does this!)

So I went out to get a toy gift for the boys, and nothing for the girl because I can make some cute tote bag for her real quick.

Then I realized, I was already planning to give her the bag as a favor to my kids bday party for next month.
I don't wanna double up so I need to come up with something quick to make in next two days...
(i don't want to go out shopping anymore!)

Any idea for a 8yr-old girl gift?
Accessory or clothes?

She probably has a Barbie. What about an outfit for Barbie or one of her dolls. Maybe she would like a doll quilt. One year I gave the kids a towel that I had embroidered their name on. Most girls love beads. If you have some on hand, make a necklace or bracelet.

That is a good age for an apron. Wrap it with a cake mix or a few pudding/jello/muffin mixes.

Thank you everybody for cute ideas!

Hmm, I like the apron idea.
I have some cupcake print fabric and I can embroider a cupcake & her name on it?
I'll see if I have enough fabric.

I have linen blend fabric. Would it work as an apron?
I found a lined pattern so I can either use the same fabric or quilting cotton as a lining (which I don't really want to, because the print is really not for kids).

If you can, put in lavender sparkly anything.

When I was maybe a little younger than that, my grandmother made me a crayon apron. It had a row of really skinny (crayon-sized) pockets in it, and I could wear it while coloring. :)

The modern equivalent seems to be the crayon bandolier.

Thank you everybody for your ideas!
I managed to actually make two kids aprons.
I had pink linen blend, and embroidered a cupcake design (UrbanThreads) and added a pocket.
I bought some ready-to-make muffins & pudding to go with it.
I think it turned out really cute! Hope the girls like it. :)

Sewing machines make me happy. I like sewing with them, cleaning them, petting them, gazing longingly at them.
