Sewing: Elephant Backpack and Lunch Sack


It wasn't even a yard...
  and it was oh so cute!

I couldn't let it stay on the shelf...
  it just needed to come home with me.

And it needed a special project...
  something to make it shine!

Back to school...everyone around here is getting their little ones ready to go back to school next week.

Just perhaps it would make a lunch box...or a backpack...or perhaps both?
   But that was wishful thinking, as I didn't even have a yard.

Maybe, just maybe I could make it work...
   And maybe, just maybe I would do it my way.

A lunch bag with a drawstring interior and a top closed by a big button...
   Oh so easy for your little one to use, but secure enough to keep everything inside.

The backpack...yup, it also has a drawstring interior and a top closed by a big button...
   A zipper pocket on the front for your pencils and erasers...
   And a big pocket inside because maybe you want to take a pink pony to share.

So...my first creation from scratch...no pattern...
   And I'm pretty proud of myself!
   Might just half to do a few more!
