I've been on this kick lately of sewing these fun little cloth bags.
My favorite I think is the bag I made to hold Essential Oils. I was with my daughter on a little road trip recently and I noticed that she was carrying some of her oils in an old eyeglass case! I thought to myself that I needed to make her a bag for them. It came out so nicely that I'm not sure exactly how many I've made now and given for gifts!
I love mine. It is just my bright and cheerful colors and makes me happy just to look at it! It holds my oils in perfect place so I don't have to dig through to find them.
They are also perfectly protected with the padded pockets and sides of the bag.
Every time Jillian, my little seven year old grand-daughter, sees one of the bags she asks for one of her own. I've been thinking what kind of bag I could make for her and her little sister that would be fun for them.
I finally came up with an idea and I was so excited to dig through my fabric scraps and make them their own tiny little bags.
These bags are a fun size. They are about 6 inches wide by about 7 inches tall. Absolutely perfect size for what I had in mind. (Don't you love the little boxed corners? It makes the little bags more "professional" looking!)
I know you're wondering what these girls need such darling little bags for, right? Have you heard of the mini Lalaloopsy dolls? Jillian and Rosetta love them. They are so bright and cheerful, they have moveable legs and arms and are just so cute.
I ordered the girls some new mini Lalaloopsy dolls from Amazon and they just fit perfectly in the little bags! I mean have you seriously seen anything so cute? I think there are hundreds in the collection - I kind of want them all! Smile!
I've got them all in the little bags ready to give to the girls tomorrow and I can hardly wait!
What have you been sewing lately?
Happy Fall, friends.
