Santa Bags

I've had this Santa fabric for awhile now and have been looking for a project that showcased it. It paired nicely with this red polka dot fabric, recycled from an apron, to create a bag that fits a couple of picture books just perfectly!

Finished book bag size:  11" x 9.5" x 1.25"

I also used some scraps to create two little drawstring bags

I'm particularly pleased with how finished-looking the drawstring part turned out

Finished drawstring bag size:  4.5" x 5.5"

ETA September 2015:

Here is Claire carrying her bag (and some snacks) at the library! (Santa-side in, since it's only September.) I asked my sister what they got and she said "Three Elmo books and an Elmo DVD." Maybe I should look for some Elmo fabric...

Zippered Penguin Pouch

I made this zippered pouch for the penguin ornaments I made last Christmas. I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to make a storage bag for them to being with, but recently I've been brainstorming reasons to make bags in order to use recycled zippers. I think this bag will be large enough to store the mini tree skirt and little stuffed penguin tree topper as well.

I'm particularly please with how the zipper tabs turned out

Finished size: 7.5" x 6.5" x 1"

Hello Kitty Bags

I bought this fabric awhile ago, simply because it was Hello Kitty. I've only used it for one small project so far (though I've made another Hello Kitty bag), so I decided it was time to do something with it. Fortunately there was enough to make two bags for the twins. 

Finished size: 6.5" x 6.5" x 2.5"
