Last project for February!

Hi all,
I am squeezing in a last minute project!

I have been making a Satchel Bag for each of my boys and I finished one on friday night.
TP loves it! Here he is modelling it for me - it looks really smart with a dressy shirt and pants!

I got the inspiration from a book called 21 Sensational Patchwork Bags. I didn't really follow their instructions because I made the bag a lot smaller. So I looked at the pictures and sort of made it up as I went.

On the inside I put a pocket that is the width of the bag, with a chunky zip closure (easier for little fingers to operate) for them to put their pencils in.

I hope everyone is staying dry, it is raining here and forecast to rain until wednesday. And I hope everyone who lives on the east coast of Oz is playing it safe and staying away from the beaches in response to the Tsunami warnings today.

Don't worry (too much), be happy!

What a great idea. It looks very cool and your son seems to like it. He makes a good model by the way. That bag has great possibilities.
