Crafting for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes Report ~ My Finished Items

Do you remember awhile back I shared the supplies I had planned out to craft for an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift with a pillow case style dress as the anchor?  Here are the finished products.
As I shared in my original post, Choosing Fabric & Yarn to Craft for OCC,  I focused on the teal from the flip flops. Then I choose my fabric and bias tape and focused on the orange and teal colors.  I added a hat and scarf and a purse to match using the orange and teal theme.  I thought the little purple platypus and "pocket Pelican" Tiny Beanie Babies matched the bright colors perfectly.  I will add school supplies, hygiene items and some more toys to complete the box.

You can find the instructions for the basic pillow case style dress and hat & scarf in these earlier posts (I haven't written up the instructions for the little purse):

Please include girls underwear with your pillowcase dress. Many girls do not have underwear and can use them.
