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.
