A Little Bag for a Little Boy

My friend’s son just turned three. He is such a darling, I wanted to make something special for him. Since he has just started school, I thought a bag would be perfect!! But I’m not the brightest sewer, you see, so finding something that’s nice and not too complicated was a bit of a challenge. I searched and searched, and finally came across  Rachel Measham-Pywell’s Click to Carry Bag, which I thought would be perfect for him~~ So after a few times of trial and error, I finally put together this final product!!

I redid the curve binding but it is still not perfect. At least it is not too awful… Curves are sooooo tricky!!!!


What I loved about this bag is it not only has an adjustable strap so it can be used as a messenger style bag, it also has a satchel clip that could separate the  strap.  This way it can be attached to the back of a head rest in the car or shopping carts to keep it in children’s reach. What a thoughtful design!!

Making bags are so much fun~~ I certainly learned a lot from this process.


This bag is not flawless, but I love it~~ And I hope my friend would love it, too~~
