But until I figure out the camera issues, it's back to phone photos for now.
Call it nesting, or a desire to be inspired by my stash again, I reorganised my fabric storage bookshelf and have been trying to use up fabrics in my stash as much as I can. This isn't to say I still haven't been scoring a ton of great stuff from the op shops lately, or visiting Lincraft's 50% off fabric sale, or making hubby drive us all up to The Fabric Store so I could get something for myself and call it our "anniversary present"... hehe.... anyway....
Library bags. My kids love books but I end up carrying a huge, heavy bag every fortnight cause they go a bit crazy. So they now have their own bags which they'll also be able to use for school. I'll let them borrow as many books as they can fit/carry themselves! YAY to saving my own back.
All the fabric used were from the stash! Hooray. I even had enough to whip up a few more as future gifts. Smart thinking woman.
I used this tutorial - the handles are shorter and the bag is lined. There is also a little name label section inside.
I added a square base as I think it makes the bag look more professional and better for book holding.
You can find a tutorial on how to do that here.
