Part of the Christmas gift request is for this:
Now, I love office supplies, so that was pretty fun to shop for. But the funner part of the gift request was for a tote to carry them all in. And this is what I came up with for that portion of the gift:
The request was for colorful and not too big.
It measures approx. 8"high, 9-1/2"wide, 4"deep. (I hope that isn't too big)
I think this clear vinyl zippered pocket will be a fun surprise.
This was the most unexpected gift wish I would ever have expected.
I did not use a pattern. I just made the bag up as I went along.
A lot of experimental guesswork was involved with it's creation.
I sure did have a fun time with it though.
There was a time I would never have considered making something like this without a pattern. I guess I'm getting brave in my old age or maybe it's just blind wreckless crazy...yeah, probably the later.
Go crazy! It's fun!
