My triplet niece and nephews just turned three recently, and my mom wanted to give them book bags for the preschool coloring/workbooks they're going to start messing with soon.  Her contribution to the gift was choosing and purchasing the fabrics, and mine was making them up.

Two different Noah's Ark prints for the boys, and Bedtime Bears for the girl, mostly because the bear in the print is carrying a pink teddy bear just like the one my niece has; all three fabrics are Debbie Mumm for Jo-Ann.  I like the NA print on the right best--I'm thinking of cutting out squares of the individual animals and making them centerpieces of mug rugs/potholders/etc.

The bags are interfaced (light, anyway) for some body, self-lined, box corners, no pockets.  I drafted the measurements from one of the workbooks that go with the bags as the gift, but I seem to have lost my notes, so I want to say they're in the neighborhood of 9x12".

I'm reasonably happy with how they turned out, and I'm very happy that all three only took me one long afternoon from start to finish!

Cute, and as the mother of a 3-year-old, I can attest to how much toddlers love toddler-sized bags/totes. My son can't get enough of them.
