For Lennie, I made a Noodlehead bag - the Madras Tote Bag. I made this one for myself when I went to the Fat Quarterly retreat last year
I had a piece of nice summery heavy cotton (duck cotton?)
|And I lined it with some baby blue spotty fabric I bought locally|
Can you believe she won't use it yet because it's too summery!
For the kids I made a drawstring bag using this tutorial from Christine at Grapes and Hearts.
They do a lot of traveling between child minder, grandparents and home, so I thought these would be useful to carry cars, farm animals, dinosaurs etc, and make a handy play mat when they arrive at their destination.
|Kris is mad about space, so I tried to find some good space-ship fabric but had to settle with road signs!|
Sorry this is a bit late, and Christmas is obviously just a dim and distant memory. I'm determined to start earlier this year! I have another advent calendar to make too. Lennie didn't give me much time last year, so I only made one. I hope to refine last years and make a second one so there are no arguments about who gets what!
