My friends, Caitlin and Bailey Hitch, turned 21 today!!! They are twins and are very dear to me. We have been friends since the first day our parents left us in the dorms and three years later they are still some of my closest friends. So I decided to make their birthday presents. I love homemade presents. =)
First off... Caitlin has fallen in love with hair clips makes out of Yo-Yos. So I found a simple tutorial online for making Yo-Yos, threw on some antique buttons, and sewed them to hair clips. Easy peasy! They even made the white bag interesting. (enclosed inside the bag? an antique teacup =)

So I drew my color scheme and inspiration from the purple fabric you see the E's made of. After cutting out the letters using an Amy Butler pattern I sewed the letters to the burlap with random zig-zag lines and added all sorts of buttons and ribbons. I LOVE antique buttons in case you didn't notice. I use them so much though that I am starting to run out and need to go hunt for more soon.
