Bags, bags and a hat.

I still am working on the kids present box....I finished Olivia's and Stacie's bags. We saw tote bags at Sea World that they loved and they were cute, but very expensive. I told them I would make them bags with their favorite animals. Stacie loves penguins so here is hers.







I used upholstery fabric so they would be super strong. They both are lined and have big pockets. Stacie is a nurse and she works a lot. She could throw her kindle, lunch and anything else in here. I also made clay danglies of their animal and hung them on the bag.






Liv's animal was a sea turtle. I did a plain green turtle raw edge appliqued and then I free sewed some details and then beaded the turtle. I think she will like it. We both love sparkly, pretty things.










Her clay turtle came out so cool...I love the little treasures on his back.







I just have pj bottoms to sew and I may dye shirts too match and then I will be done...I am excited for them to get their birthday box.

I also made a little Blythe derby hat. It is pretty cute just on a little stand.







Well, it is time to go get on the treadmill. I am all kinked up from hunching over sewing....Happy summer! xoxooxomelinda

Love the penguin bag. Both are wonderful, and so much more filled with love than the others would have been.
