This week we are sewing drawstring bag for Sew It. Great timing as I've wanted to sew a bag for Hanan since she's so jealous of her big sis's bag.
You know she's at this stage where she wants to imitate everything her big sis does and she also wants everything her big sis has. She emphasises all this in constant "Anan Punya!!!" ("This is MINE!!!") grabbing and pushing sessions whenever her big sis touches something. Sighh...recipe for headache for the mom...
So I figured a simple drawstring bag is perfect for her. Something small and cute that Hanan can call her own and show off to her big sis. I chose the first one recommended by Mayya for Sew It, but when I went to the tutorial page I found a few variations useful to customize the bag. So I turned it into a drawstring backpack with lining. This is to make it easier for little miss Hanan to carry it.
Love how neat the lining is. I patched the outer bag to turn it into a pink and blue colorway (I LOVE pink and blue together). I used the same pink dots fabric for the lining.
Little miss Hanan was estatic! She keeps saying "Beg Anan! Beg Anan!!".
Here, at 9pm, in her pjs, she stuffed the bag with some toys. Then, she made Aisha put on her school backpack, waved mommy goodbye, said "Anan skool mommy!!" and walk hand in hand to wherever "skool" is LOL. I love my little sassypants.
Come and join us sometime at Sew It, it really is fun!
