Saturday fun

On Saturday Hannah was complaining about how bored she was so I thought we'd do a little project together. We got out the quilting book for kids that we have and found a project to do. We were supposed to hand sew most of it but for the sake of making it all in one day we used the sewing machine. She picked out the fabrics from some leftovers I had from another quilt.

She wanted to put her name on the bag. Which means I had to make the letters and cut them out.

We used fusible web to put the letter on the bag. I stitched around the edges for her too.

Here she is sewing the straps. I did the pining and she sewed everything together.

Here is the final product. A book bag! She loves it.

It was a great little project to work on since it was so hot outside that we didn't want to go out at all.

That's fantastic!

Excellent fabric, btw! Emma loves her quilt. Well, when it's not 80 degrees in the house she does!

You could totally sell those! I hear Etsy calling your name.

Hey Ellen! Thanks for posting this, especially the very first image with the directions in it! I made a bag for Caitlin for Halloween candy from those directions.


I'll post pics tomorrow! Ciao!
