Good morning Cuties! Here is a girl version of my 'mistake' in Community/Sewing. Sorry I don't have my model today, well sorry for you, but good for me! Time for a week-end break. I used 2 fat quarters. I had a 4 x 10 inch piece of the pink left, and a 6 x 22 in piece of the stripe. I really wish I could have made the stripe cut 3 inch, in the center narrower, but it was all I could do, with the fabric I had.Have a great day-Toogie

Thanks I only wish the 3 in strip in the middle could have been smaller but I didn't have enough of the pink.

I just got the pirate one done, actually, I made 2 pirate ones. I just have to put the straps on one. They are made but I am quitting for the day. Been a long day.

I did write down my measurements with this one. I finished this one this morning, while cooking lunch and now I have the pirate ones made, minus putting the straps on one. I'm stopping for today, think I've done enough.-lol

They say many of the worlds best ideas are the result of a mistake---I think you are on to something!! I'll bet this one won't stay in your sewing room long and you will probably be taking orders when Nora's little friends Moms see it! Really cute and love your fabric combinations.

Just right size for our nearly two year old. I didn't show the photo of what was in it...her Tag, doesn't get far without 'Tag'. I think she's holding it in some of the photos.

She wasn't here today, but she'll be back next week.I'll let you know which one she keeps. (I did make one, no two, with the pirate fabric she liked)

Toogie your productivity never ceases to amaze me. as ever lovely work and great creativity from you. With the zip going down its going to be easier to add to the contents of the backpack when its being worn

I was kind of like the absent minded professor. Made it by accident. My SIL decided what it should be. (You have to read my post in Sewing, if you haven't already, to understand) Thank you but you must have me mixed up with Carolyn/noah-lol-I can't hold a candle to what she can do in a day..Have a good night or day, whatever the case is now for you-I'm going to bed!-Toogie

How cute this is Toogie :) and definitely girly for Nora!
I love the cheery fabrics you have used here :)
I dont have any like these in my fabric stash....

I edited to show you the pack of fat quarters I got this fabric from. I have had it quite a while. Remember when Walmart was closing or about to close their fabric departments? I got this and another pack at the same time, and they rang up $5.00 each! There are 8 pieces in each pack...Nora likes to open the fabric drawers and look at the fabrics. She is gonna be as bad as me about loving fabric! GOOD- anyway, she picked some pirate fabric for a backpack and I will make one out of it and see which one she picks then. She may have liked the turquoise colored background or the figures,sharks on it. We will see.

lol- My daughter says one thing we are not short of is bags! I have only made 3 for them, a crossbody (remember those?), a diaper bag, and a tote for Avery's hospital stay (remember the cheerleader design?) so I don't know where the rest of her bags came from!!!!!
