Make Do March...pretty little bag

I go to a MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) group and every other meeting we do a craft which I love. It's so nice to craft something simple without little fingers helping or feeling guilty that dishes aren't being washed or laundry folded! The most recent craft involved making your own fabric flowers and attaching them to a canvas bag. My friend Lisa picked me up all the supplies so I could also make one.
  The flowers are super easy to make.  Take 2 inch strips of fabric scraps fold them in half and then twist and form the strand into circles. I stitched the circles together as I went and you can make them as small or large as you like. I then stitched the flowers together in the design I wanted and then to the bag.  It's a great way to use up scraps! I think it turned out pretty cute and I'm very happy that I actually finished the project so it won't sit around forever unfinished!  It's a perfect size for library books, here's hoping I remember to bring it the next time we go! :)

Happy make doing!


  1. Great bag. Put it in the car or stroller and it will be there for the books when you visit the library, farmer's market, grocery, etc. It always make me use them that way, because I forget to take them out of the house in the hurry of gathering all I need to take to the store (like the list, the returnables, the cold/hot bag and all)
