Book Bag Tote

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The book bag goes really well with the school uniform! But I am really thrilled that Becca has already made up a story for every single fabric book on her bag! Perhaps one day we will read her stories too. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Lesson for me: don't be obsessed with trying to find the perfect matches of fabric scraps,

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric scraps
  • medium weight fabric for lining
  • interfacing.

Q&A with abanabana

K Lee 2Strings asked:
Abanabana, this is just adorable! I love the "stories" on the outside! What a very clever bag and a clever way to handle her gift, too! The fabrics she chose are delightful (so much better than matchy-matchy) and they are her own choices, so the bag has more meaning for her. I'd love to hear those stories!
abanabana answered:
Thank you so much! I will pass the compliments on to the little designer! Becca's mum told me later how much she enjoyed the process of choosing the fabrics for her bag. I must admit that it has been a triumphal feeling to me watching Becca stride towards the library the last couple of days.
