one of those projects that has made me wonder what sort of insanity prompted me to not only contemplate this in the first place, but actually START it, and hence need to finish it. And then again. And again.
I'm blaming pinterest myself! Anyhow, let me present library bag number one. I started with the oldest child. The one with the shortest name, and the one with the least amount of curly bendy letters in her name.
The library bag is a plain pre made calico bag from school, and in my fit of pinterest derived delirium, I decided that instead of just their name on the front in Nikko pen, I would instead beautifully appliqué their names on the front and add some cute embellishments. Snort.
I got as far as the name and figured that was enough thank you very much, but once fiddling with the drawstring bag realised that it would be so much more practical with handles. So with some strips of precut fabric, quickly made some handles for the bag, did some rough measurements and sewed them on below the drawstring so that it is still functional.
Am working on the boys at the moment, the child with the second shortest name, and I will be telling everyone that wonky was the look I was aiming for!
Poor Georgie, with the long, curved lettered name. I wonder if she would be happy with a big G instead?!!
