I haul the kidlets over to the library pretty frequently. It's a fun little outing and it seems to get them excited to read new books. One thing that drives me bonkers is trying to keep all of the library books separate from our own little collection. As I was drumming up ideas for Christmas gifts, I thought that I could decorate a tote bag for each of them to keep their library books in. Something that they could carry by themselves. When we get into our new house I'm going to make a pegboard just for their library totes.Some of you that are handy with the sewing machine could probably just whip up some tote bags, but I thought it was much easier just to buy a 3 pack at Wal-Mart for just under 6 bucks making the totes $2 each! Not too shabby!!!
I wanted to make each one unique. I used the vinyl cutter to make some stencils for their names or initials.
I also used some scrap pieces of felt.
On Livy's bag I cut out a bird with some flowers and stitched around the edges. I made felt flowers for the other girls by cutting either regular circles or wavy circles and stacked them on top of each other and then stitched them. I totally enjoyed this project!! Super inexpensive too! Here's what they ended up looking like
I'm super excited to say that I'll be sharing a few of my favorite things today on
