Gifts for my niece and nephew

I'm FINALLY getting around to posting the gifts I made my niece and nephew for Christmas.
For my nephew I made an activity bag like the one I made Munch for his birthday.

I included plenty of fun stuff to keep him busy and included a crayon roll.

For my niece I made this Buttercup Bag from Made By Rae. I've been meaning to make one for myself for a while now, but it seemed perfect for her. Totally making a more adult version for myself next. Would make a cute clutch for a night out; provided I use the fabric.
I added some fun goodies to the bag, including this tissue holder.
I think the gifts were a hit. My niece didn't believe I made the bag, because I put a Craft Cherry tag in it and nothing handmade should have a tag in it, right? :o)
