Drawstring Backpack

They recently started sprinkler days at Chase's daycare so I wanted to make him a little backpack to carry his swim gear in.  I made a little drawstring bag.  It has two pockets outside, one pocket inside, and is lined with orange and black.  I was very happy with how it turned out.  I wanted to take a picture of it on Chase but I just haven't gotten around to it.

I haven't managed to finish any of the other billion crafting projects that I have recently started - I am apparently in a starting projects mood lately.

Pear Bag

On Thursday I found this wonderful pear fabric - I love it.  I made another little hand tote out of it with a matching wallet (which is unfortunately a wee bit too small - I probably need to redo it).

Bag and Baby Shoes

Yay!  Finally some time to update my page with a few projects I recently finished.

Dew Drop Bag
I saw a picture of a bag like this online and I am very excited because it was my first attempt at making my own bag pattern from a picture.  I think it turned out quite well.  I would do the handles differently next time because they aren't as neat looking as I would like but overall I was happy with the project.

Here are some baby shoes I recently made from a pattern I found online.  I love them because they are quick and easy and they don't use a lot of fabric.  I made these for friend who is having a baby shower next week.
