My youngest daughter has a best friend in daycare, Presley. They are inseparable and talk non stop about each other at home. It's a sad day when one or the other misses a day for some reason. So it was very devastating to hear that Presley and her mom were moving across the country. This also meant that Alexis would miss celebrating Presley's birthday by one week. But that didn't mean there couldn't be a gift to remind Presley of her best friend!
I followed this tutorial making a few modifications, including adding the monogram. A matching crayon roll and a few coloring books will make it ideal for the airplane. It took me longer than expected because there were a few parts of the tutorial I had to read through multiple times before I fully understood them. I think future attempts will go more smoothly. And there will definitely be future attempts because I love the outcome!
As for Alexis, she is adjusting well to the loss of her best friend. Within a week she had a new bestie at school, although she asks about Presley nearly every day :(
