Now these have been gifted to one of my great-nephews and four of my great-neices, I can finally share a few photographs of these super bags! Thiese were all made using the Piecekeeper pattern which is a free PDF download from the ByAnnie website. As you can see, one was made with a clear viny front and the others were made with mesh, as in the origiginal instructions. The colourful zippers were from Zipper Station (I buy zipper by the metre with extra zipper pulls) and co-ordinated the colour of the zipper with the colour of the fabrics used for the bags. ...
...the bags were made with soft and stable wadding, and each one was quilted in a simple crosshatch design. I've used a selection of fabrics from my stash for these so each bag is different. Once the binding had been machined into place, they were filled with a selection of colouring books and colouring pencils, appropriate for each child. The youngest recipient is only a few months old, so I popped a couple of story books in her bag! These make great gifts and are perfect for storing all sorts of bits and bobs. The carrying handle means they're easy to transport, even for little people!
