I decided the other week to make new church bags for the girls. New year, new bags, right? Just go along with it...I really just wanted an excuse to use this gorgeous Echino fabric! A fat quarter was just enough to make these kid sized totes. (not including the lining of course) I also got a huge kick out of using such brightly colored fabrics....I don't know why really....it's unexplainable. They just made me so happy! Fabric can do that to a girl.
FYI, the bottom bag is made with this fabric on the outside, and this fabric on the inside. The top bag is made with this fabric on the outside, and this fabric on the inside (in turquoise).
I used my own tote bag tutorial (one of my firsts, so sorry about the pictures and over the top cheesiness), and scaled it down so it would fit a few coloring books, etc.
I had just enough left over from the large floral to make a quick pouch for the girls markers. (those fancy ones that only color on certain paper. Bless whoever invented those!)
The other bag got a pouch for crayons, made from this fabric.
Now that a tiny bit of my life has been made cuter and more organized...I'm onto the next project!
