My littlest nephew's 1st birthday was Thursday, so I made my sister-in-law something to celebrate. On a child's 1st birthday, I think the mommy deserves most of the celebration!
First I made the "Slouch Bag" - an Ali Foster Pattern.
Very easy pattern to follow, but I used fusible interfacing instead of canvas as the pattern calls for. I didn't want it to be too "slouchy!" The fabric is Alexander Henry "traffic jam," and the inside is a home decor Alexander Henry fabric - I found both on sale at The Crafty Planet. On the inside I added a large pocket for her iPhone, pens, snacks, etc.
here. These were really quick and fun to made. I filled the larger one with chocolate and tossed it in the Slouch Bag. We kept the littlest one to store Lexi's silly bands. I would definitely make this bag again, but would probably modify the lining a bit -- I don't like seeing the unfinished seams on the inside -- good thing it is hidden by the chocolate!
