Library bags and sewing stuff.

Im loving sewing library bags, I think all the children in my life this year will be getting library bags for their birthdays!

Such a useful thing to have a cute bag, for kids to take a toy or some bits in for the car, or for books, or even for keeping pjs in.  I whipped up this one for a gift for a very special little guy in my life for his 4th birthday.  My friend said 'no gifts' but I couldn't quite handle not bringing anything.....we had a lovely morning tea with them, celebrating his birthday.  Nothing beats homemade cake and good cuppa I tell you! 

A bag like this is a great thing for beginner sewers to practise with.  I will whip up a quick tutorial this week I think. It's very simple but good for building basic skills and it's a useable practical item at the end which is great for boosting confidence! 

I had a cuddle doll out ready to finish this morning....looks like baby Henry is interested in the concept of doll making.  It's pretty cool to see him trying to imitate me, though it's a little more "Frankenstein" then "waldorf".... :/

Henry is unwell today with a tight chest and quite wheezy.  We spent many hours in ED last night.  We are off back to the Dr shortly.  If you could please keep him in your prayers and thoughts that would mean so much to me.



  1. I'm sending mega healing thoughts and prayers from around the world to Henry and to you.
    My children had "BYE BYE" bags until they reached their teens and I had one that I kept in the back of the car at all times. In the children's bags they kept small toys, books,markers(crayons melt here in the summer)paper etc. All these were just for use in the car or at the park/roadside area while we were going somewhere. A 30 min drive can seem quite boring when you are little and opening your own bag and finding toys you haven't played with for days or weeks really helps the time to pass. They were allowed to take one or two things inside if it was appropriate.
    The bag I kept in the car had flip flops, shorts, underwear, and a top during the warm months and tee shirt, sweat shirt pants, socks and spare shoes(usually old pair) a plastic bag and some wipes. My children seemed to find water or mud where ever we went! and of course we sometimes had "accidents"
    Please post an update on how Henry is doing,

  2. We had the same thing when we were little! :) We have a 10hr car drive coming up soon when we visit our friends station. I must say I'm not looking forward to it. Angus and William are quite good travelers, but little Henry is not so much.

    I have a bag with a full change of clothes, hats, sunscreen, wipes, spare nappies, an old towel or two and a picnic rung in the back of my car permanently. Its amazing how often it comes in handy. Also makes getting out of the house far faster.
