Birthday Gift for a 1 year old boy

My daughter ordered a book from shutterfly for Cooper's 1 year birthday. You upload a picture and some basic information and they create a book. The child's picture and name are placed on every page and some basic information. It is very cute and comes in different styles. She got the alphabet book, but there is also a Dora the Explorer & Sesame Street book available.

She wanted something to put the book in so I made this bag. He can later use it to carry his "stuff" around.
This was some fabric I had in my stash that I purchased almost a year ago at a huge home decor fabric store sale. I really liked the fabric and have been waiting for an opportunity to use it in a project.

I don't have an embroidery machine (although it is on my "I Want" list), so I used printable fabric for his name and appliqued it on the front for a personal touch.

The appliqué looks good. It actually looks like (from the pic view) it's part of the fabric. I was just waiting on you to say you found fabric with names on it and it happened to have his.

BTW, I love the sunflower dress below. It really compliments your pattern. I now think I'm sold.
