Last week Boo started preschool, the night before I realised he didn’t have a bag. His nappies and clothes are always chucked into one of my bags, so I had a mission to find something to be Boo’s bag in an evening as I didn’t realise until the night before.
After searching the house, there really wasn’t anything that I could use, apart from the million and one plastic bags that we have from shopping.
But I did have some amazing jungle fabric that was given to me as it was being chucked out. I never really knew what to do with it but a drawstring bag seemed the perfect fit. I found my very small sewing machine so it was perfect to attempt to make the bag!
It was a really simple bag and I found it really easy to make, I cut out a long rectangle, folded down one edge to put some ribbon through and then folded the fabric in half and sewed the edges together it was that simple. When I had finished I added a button to push the bag together.
The whole project would have been a whole lot easier, if the sewing machine didn’t start to mess around and the foot fall off, and the needle become a problem.
So it did take a lot longer than I was expecting.
I love the fact that the fabric is so bright and either side of the bag is completely different.
And I really enjoyed it, I actually loved it, so much so that the next day I asked and begged Mr L for a new sewing machine for my birthday which I managed to get and I can not wait to do some more sewing projects with it.
