It turned out a lot better than I expected. This was the first time I'd made a piece of clothing for a child. This was also the first time I've used my new sewing machine!
The pattern called for two 1-1 1/2" buttons, but when I saw these little hearts I. saw. God. Regular buttons or sparkly hearts? Please.
And thanks to Sae for the tissue paper box idea. She gave me a handmade necklace in one for my last birthday and I've stored all sorts of secret, special trinkets in it since. All it needs is a frilly ribbon!
