In the Bag

You may remember the sweet little mini bag/pencil cases I made using fabrics from Aneela Hoey's "Little Apples" collection. I ended up stuffing them with colored pencils, beads, "Hello Kitty" lip gloss, and other small trinkets for my other two nieces for Christmas. All girls just seem to love bags to keep their treasured keepsakes in.

As a coordinating present, I decided to put a little twist on the "shopper totes" that I had been turning out just a few weeks before. Simple sewing, simple lines, silver grommets accents, with sweet fabric made these matching drawstring book bags ultra cute.

Just in case you're looking... here's a really easy how-to video on how to make a drawstring backpack. Happy sewing!

  3. These came out really well. Your sewing always looks so neat and perfect! I'm so tempted to blame my sewing machine, but I know it takes two to tango in this game, ha!

  4. Jules, you might be surprised that your sewing machine might actually have a lot to do with it. When I switched to my Bernina, I noticed a world of differece. For me it was well worth the investment.
