I’m spending Christmas with my kids next weekend so I have a little more time to finish the gifts. Just put the last stitches in these for 2 of mine & 3 of their new siblings. I hope they like them, I can’t believe how much time they took, just the embroidery & applique alone took most of a day.
They’re for 6 & 9 yr olds, I was originally thinking “library bags” but they do a lot of traveling & they’re the perfect size for stowing a few books, a gameboy, phone, coloring books, etc for road trips. And with such original names I know they rarely see anything personalized just for them. The lining fabric is also specific to each child and I used up a ton of denim yardage & scraps from turning jeans into shorts.
