So on with the collection of tote bags I made:
|This one is made from hot pink denim and lined with a turquoise pink and green floral print. All of my bags are stabilized with interfacing. The butterfly theme is on both sides. I think it's quite fitting for an 8 year old girl.|
|I think Raggedy Ann & Andy are perfect for a 6 year old girl.|
These designs came from Designs by Sick
I added a fancy flower
next to her name on the back.
But my favorite part is the
Raggedy Ann print I found
for the lining. All of the fabrics
used in this collection of tote bags
I had on hand. I dug through my
stash and found pieces of fabric
I had forgotten all about.. What Fun !!
My 10 year old niece got a peacock. I love this
design. The pedestal is silver. Just a little sparkle.
I used the lining fabric for the handle. The turquoise is a medium heavy bottom weight fabric. I added a pink swirly design as an accent to the monogram.
|Another 10 year old girl got the crazy cats! This one is from|
Kreations by Kara also. A light denim is lined with a
tan based multi-color floral print. The colors match the cat
colors, kind of ties it all together. Little kitty tracks
run next to the monogram on this one.
|I have one young nephew. He is 7 years old. Not wanting to have him feel left out, I searched for some type of "manly" bag for him. I found this at Punkin Patterns. I changed it up a little: Added the brown plaid lining and pocket, and attached an adjustable strap. I even made my own bias tape out of broadcloth I had on hand, since I didn't have any packaged bias tape that was the right color.|
I think it looks just Manly enough.
That is the last of the tote bags I made for Christmas this year. I had alot of fun making these. I hope the kids enjoy them, too - And use them!!
