something for the little Guy

So that the little Guy (and you) don't think it's all baby baby baby around here at the moment I thought I should make something for him.  He takes a fairly tatty bag to kindy and I've been meaning to make him something a bit more his style.  


When I saw this tutorial the other day on Sew Mama Sew I thought it would be perfect for him.  He is especially keen on messenger style bags as his Dad carries one.

I did tamper with the tutorial just a bit and kind of did it my way as I was getting confused reading the instructions.  But the dimensions of the bag are quite good, the assembly I made up as it's pretty straight forward bag making stuff.


My mother in law brought this fabric back from New Zealand last year and it's a heavier cotton drill kind of fabric, perfect for a bag.



And here is one of our locals trying to balance his big scratchy bird claws on a very smooth round light fitting in the front yard yesterday.  I don't think it's going to work buddy!
