After seeing so many wonderful versions of this bag across the blogosphere, I knew that I wanted to tackle it. Knowing that it would be perfect for my two girls - each could use one for the long weekend getaway that we were planning and for the various trips to visit family over the summer - I decided to make TWO (what is wrong with me?).
So I quickly ordered the pattern and fabrics, and anxiously awaited their delivery. As soon as the UPS man rang the bell alerting me that my packages had come, I set to work deciphering the pattern instructions and cutting (and cutting and cutting and cutting).
Bag 1 - for my 6 year-old because she LOVES the 3 little pigs!
Bag 2 - for my 3 year-old because I love the
Little Red print, and her favorite color is blue!
That was over 2 months ago...
And my pile of fabric sits. And mocks me. It calls me a scaredy cat.
Which I am. The instructions are just so daunting! And you know how I. Hate. Patterns.
We just got back from our long weekend getaway and the girls had to use backpacks to carry their belongings. Another trip is planned for 2 and 1/2 weeks from now. I really hope that this pile goes away.
p.s. Has anyone tried this pattern? I would love any advice that you have to offer!
