First up, a girl version:
The tote is made from a very dark-washed denim. The straps are from a recycled belt. The patch on the front is a pocket this time.
Second, a fabric applique version:
The book I chose for this gift is amazing, but the illustrations are a little abstract and didn't translate well to the project. So I decided to try to make a replica of the house in the story out of fabric and felted wool. I am in love with this bag! I need to wrap it soon so I don't try to keep it for myself! (These would be great for those of you without access to a scanner!)
Third, a wee one version:
This is for a very little one that might not appreciate a book bag just yet! The bib is from Ikea and comes in a package of 5, I always buy a set when I make it there. They wash up (and bleach) really nicely and work great for quick gifts.
So, there you have it! I really love it when one idea inspires more and more ideas.
