As cute as it was, $31 was out of my budget... not to mention that I have no idea if there is a physical Land of Nod location in my state. I've only ever browsed online for inspiration. :) (If you're interested, theirs is on sale right now for only $17.)
A trip to JoAnn's and a visit to my stash produced...
My out-of-pocket cost was around $13:
- snap n' stack organizer, $6
- scissors, $2
- embroidery floss, $2
- measuring tape, $1
- small spool of ribbon, $1
- googly eyes, $1
- needles, on-hand (I ended up including one darning needle and one sharper needle, in a simple felt needlebook)
- felt, on-hand
The elephant was from this Taffy Talk pattern, and the other shapes were from coloring pages I found various places online.
I also cut out some felt puppets, from She Wears Flowers, and tossed in a few random scraps for her to make her own embellishments.
Just toss the supplies in the tote (or other container), snap it together, and toss a bow on top. Or, if you're like me, skip the bow and make up for it by saying "Happy Birthday!" extra enthusiastically. :)
