A quick glam on a lunch box!

My faraway grand kids are here this week and yesterday Olivia needed something to put all of her treasures in.  I looked around in my craft room and had forgotten that I had bought this lunchbox at an outlet store a while back. I bought it because it had Olivia printed on the front and I have a sweet Olivia! It had a couple of rips down the front side but they only went through the front fabric. (I should have taken a before picture so you could see the rips!)
I found some pink thread and with a needle stitched up the tear in the fabric. When I was finished I thought, hm mm we need something to hide that bigger rip down the side.

You can see the rip at the bottom that has been stitched. We, meaning Olivia and I , (because she loves to make things and was by my side through the whole process.) found some felt and leather and hot glued the flowers right over the rip.  We layered different sizes of flowers and then added a polka dot button.

She loved it! and told me "Grandma, this is reeealy cute!"  She was so excited to have a new bag for all of her treasures.

Thanks Olivia for helping me make this cute lunchbox/ bag!
