Waiting Until The Last Minute!

There is a birthday party for a couple of Wren's school friends tomorrow afternoon and I waited until the last minute to decide on gifts!

After spending large amounts of money at the gas station and grocery store today, my decision was made. I must make something.

These are based on the pattern Simple Tote from Bend-the-Rules Sewing.

I used grosgrain ribbon for the handles to speed things a long, which I think works for kids bags. It's always a gamble giving homemade gifts to kids you don't know very well, but every kid could use a tote. Right?

I had to return my bend the rules sewing to the library but that is one pattern I will be making when I buy my very own copy! Yours turned out great.
Personally homemade gifts are always my favorite but I am always a little nervous about giving them too. I don't see how anyone could not love and appreciate those bags! Have fun at the party!

Wow, what could you do with an extra day? As someone who stinks at sewing, I humbly bow to you :)

Those are so great! Love that flame fabric, you know. Both of mine tote bags all over the place! Luc was just hauling around two dead cell phone and a wooden fish a little while ago.
