So my mom commissioned me to make a bag to put books in for a therapist at her office who was going to have a baby back in March. Well, I guess the therapist liked the bag so much that she wanted me to make a couple bags, one for her niece and one for her nephew. Since they were so fun to make, I thought I'd share them. ^_^
This one was for the nephew, who is two and loves cars:
It's just a boxy, straightforward sort of thing, but it's pretty sturdy (essential for when he decides he wants to bring all his cars and trucks along ^_^). I also added this:
a couple of elastic loops in the front pocket for storing his two favorite cars, so Mommy doesn't have to go searching through the entire bag for them.
Then, there was this lily-pad purse for the ten-year old niece, who loves frogs:
Since ten is such a weird age and she's not much of a girly girl, I wanted to make something fun enough for a kid, but slightly cool enough to last her into early teen years. This was my first time using interfacing, and I screwed it up a little, but not too badly. There was also just enough material left over for a small change purse. Here's a picture of the lining fabric, because it is just too cute:
Thanks for looking!
