My sister asked if I could make three of my nephews (I have 12 nephews total - but not all from the same sister:)) little zippered pouches for scout camp. Each boy needs his own personal first aid kit and she thought fabric pouches would be so much cooler than little ziploc bags. I used some football fabric I got from the thrift store for a quarter, zippers from my stash, iron letters from my stash and VOILA!! Cute bags for three cute boy scouts:)
I found an awesome book all about tote bags a while back (from Goodwill for $1.99) and this weekend I made two bags using one of the patterns called "Three Piece Shoulder Tote". They came together very quickly and easily. I made this one for a birthday present for a friend that I have known since we were three years old - it turned out so awesome that it was hard to pack it up and mail it away:) But I think I have enough of these fabrics left to make one more.
And this version is for the Bag Ladies Swap for June through Flickr. This is my first month with this group and I'm really excited. This month's theme was polka dots. I used a little green dot print for the inside and added an interior pocket to this one, along with a matching tissue holder. This print just screams "summer" to me.
