I decided to embroider my typical sheep drawing on bags to hold the kids favors. Originally I had thought about sewing the bags but I found some at Michaels Craft Store (Creatology Canvas). I invited 3 nieces and 7 nephews to the party so I had to embroider 10 bags in advance. I started in April for the August party. The bags were complete in July. I embroidered names (using each child’s favorite color) after I received an RSVP. I only had to stitch one name the day before the party. These bags were a lot of work but I enjoyed stitching them. Early into the project I decided to stitch only one component with each sheep. My typical cartoon drawing often includes a butterfly, snail, and flowers.
Favors for the bags. The kids also placed their completed ornaments and sheep name card in their bags.
