My sisters that live here in town and I decided that it would be fun to start having a monthly craft day. We plan to take turns finding a fun project and then we'll get together one day each month and do them. This month my sister Sarita found this great little tutorial to make a bag http://madeonmaple.blogspot.com/2011/01/bow-bag-tutorial.html. Yesterday we all met at my house with out materials and got going on them.
They turned out to be very simple, but so cute! I wish that I had take pictures of Sarita's and Ali's bags before they left, but these are the ones that I made for Lily and I.
At first I thought that I was being a little silly making one for Lily as well, but after mine was finished and I was working on hers she grabbed mine and played with it for the entire time that I was sewing hers. I scaled down the pattern a bit so that Lily's bag would be a better size for her. She has been carrying her books and baby dolls around in it all day.
And of course, while the mommas sewed the kids played. Lily and Junior specialized in mischief and playing with everything that they shouldn't. The decided to take over Oscar's crate for a little while.
