A Birthday Gift for Sarah

I made her a sewing machine cover (thank goodness we have the same machine, cause the dimensions were different then the pattern) from this book. I got the Little Red Embroidery pattern from here. Sarah has been mentioning for a while she wants to learn how to embroider and that she wants a bag with an embroidered camera on it. So I got her this e-book, a set of various sized embroidery needles, I made her a little needle holder (last minute because I couldn't figure out how to wrap them so they wouldn't get lost), and I made her a drawing of her camera for her to use an embroidery pattern.

I of course finished everything last minute and almost forgot to take pictures :)
