Hey all... wanted to post up my lil project I have been working on today.  It is a library bag for my one year old son...  It is approximately 2/3 of a letter sized page.  Made it out of scraps that my sis left over 13 yrs ago...  

Messed up on the length of the straps but I think it came out quite well anyways... I put a snap onto the lengthened piece of strap, which if the strap ever gets too small to slip on and off you can always just snap the lil one in!! lol  Grin

Put on a few embroidered appliques and voila!!  SImple and plain became kid freindly  Shocked

*update* This is him trying it on this morning

that's such a cute bag! i wanna make one for meeee! =) and i must say, your son looks like he is running away to the library with his new bag to get some bookies! (my son calls them bookies, i'm not crazy) did you use a pattern or just wing it?

lol... I winged it...

basically just put a sheet of paper to his back and decided what was porportionate to his body and that it could hold atleast one book...  Didnt really want to make it too big otherwise more stuff might be stuffed in and its not good for a lil one to be carrying anything too heavy...

I also lined the inside with really light green checkered cotton, so that the seams dont go too quick from lil fingers trying to pull at any random strings...

iloveoctopus, goodluck... its really easy... not too much thinking to make it just remeber to measure the straps!!!

lol, oh yes he may look like it but he is actually running around he house looking for things to pull down and tear up!  The rath of Nicozilla!!!
