The little guy needed a library book bag and so I made one. I used painter's drop cloth fabric from Canadian Tire. I love that stuff. Cheap, sturdy, washes well. And you get a huge quantity of fabric in the package. I actually made drapes out of it last spring for the family room. Anyway. Here it is. I used the Jane Market Bag pattern from Posy Gets Cosy. This is a great pattern and I have used it a ton. You can vary the look of the bag by altering the size of the boxed corners. In this case I cut out 3" square so the bag is a bit narrower. I used some remnants from my buddy Cynthia for the pockets. Just in case you need snacks or a place to stash your choo choo when you are finished with the library. The bag is lined with a thrift store striped cotton.
I think he is going to like this.
