An afternoon sew

I whipped up this cute little bag today.  My little daughter is off to preschool in just a couple of weeks. She's very excited so I've made her a special library bag to bring her books home in.

I had to fiddle around with the size for a while so it would be big enough for picture books without dragging on the ground.  The answer - quite large in the body of the bag but teeny handles in comparison.

Just a simple little tote with a gusset but what I love (and she loves) is the layers of applique in the corner.  All it takes is a few scraps from the stash and a bit of extra stitching.  It's so easy and cheap to make something special.
