Kate's dresser

Kate needed a dresser and I found this one for $5 at a yard sale.  It is in good condition but obviously needed some paint!  Kate was very anxious to help me with this project.
First we took it apart and sanded all the drawers and drawer pulls and the body of the dresser.
Even Isaac "helped' us by overseeing our work.  
The dresser needed 2 coats of paint.  I turned Kate loose with the roller on the backside of the dresser where it really didn't matter.  She loved having the freedom to paint her dresser.
She did a really good job!

Kate's bag

Ella got her bag 2 years ago and now it's Kate's turn!  Kate "has been waiting her WHOLE life to go to Cubbies".  She's so cute and just loves church and her friends and especially her Cubbies class.  Ella's bag  (which now holds her Sparks book) fits her personality so well.  When I made it there was no question as to what fabric I would choose on my shelf.  That bright polk-a-dot print just jumped out at me.  This time I wanted to make a bag for Kate that would fit her personality as well.  It was a lot harder for me to come up with.  She's more complicated.  If you think I'm crazy for putting so much thought into this you just don't know me! :)  It had to be perfect, perfectly Kate.  So, here are a few pics of Kate's church bag.

The bear is here to show that the front blue section is a pocket.
