When it came to crunch time the boys wanted bags with Trashies on them and I have been dreading making them. Yesterday however I was hit by inspiration. A while ago we got some crayons that you use to draw on fabric then you iron it and it is there to stay. Armed with said crayons I traced Trashie outline for the boys and they coloured them in. I was left with minimal appliqué and as a result could finish them in one day.
Pam blogged a library bag pattern the other day so I used her measurements instead of making them up and here are our new bags.
Exhibit A is a space Alley Trashie.
Exhibit B is called Putrid Pizza (Interestingly school colours were chosen for the fabric choices)
At the fabric shop the boys just finished selecting their fabric when little Miss asked for some to. I was about to say she really didn't need one when I realised she does, my littlest is starting pre-school this year. So her choice of brown fabric (I imagine there will be very little bonding with other kids over that favourite colour), and a Littlest Petshop design.
I am actually very impressed with how they turned out, being able to finish 3 including artwork in one day when all 3 kids were at home, a miracle. And now these bags are done and the school year can almost commence, well except for the school bag that needs making and the books that will need covering once they arrive and the clothes that need labelling and...and...and.
