Sewing with Snoopy

Yesterday I went to Tacoma to celebrate with a good friend who had an 80th birthday.  This “young” man lives in a nursing home and doesn’t have much space so I’ve been thinking about what to bring to celebrate the big birthday.  When I was in Joann Fabrics a couple of weeks ago I found a piece of flannel in the remnant bin (I always check out the remnants) and knew this would be perfect for a pillow case for Don.  He loves Snoopy and Charlie Brown and whenever I find something Snoopy related I buy it and save it so I can send it off to a new home.  I also had some Snoopy post it notes, magnets and some pens.  The next thought of course was what to put them in.  A bag certainly was the answer and I found this really cute Peanuts fabric so I made a bag.  It’s light weight and rolls up so it can be stored in a small space or tucked in a pocket or the basket of the walker and it will be ready when he needs it.  Very compact and easy to take when he goes to the store the  bookmobile or on a short visit to friends or relatives.  Happy Birthday Mr. B!
