schoolbag

Today Ally made a new bag for school. She kind of modelled it after my market bag, but the size is different & she added some of her own features. First of all, she chose very bright & colorful home dec fabric for the bag......

She did want the same prairie point detailing that I put on my bags so she did that.....& then she added pockets for her pens & pencils, etc, & a hook for her house key....and filled it up with her school supplies! She's all set! Two weeks from Monday & off she goes to 8th grade. No doubt she will have the fanciest bag there! & she did the whole thing herself. Very impressive! I knew that sewing machine she got for her birthday would come in handy! Next up for her is her Halloween quilt. She bought a charm pack of Halloween fabric & said she's going to do a disappearing nine patch quilt with it. I am anxious to see how that comes out! She's got a great eye for color & does a terrific job sewing.
I just thought you'd all enjoy seeing it too!
