Valentine's Day Bags
I saw this tutorial for Valentine's Day bags:
I loved the idea of creating bags for the kiddos that they can use year after year--for mail, a special treat, a book...whatever we decide to put into them. Our chairs don't have slats in them, so I changed the pattern a bit. I added elastic to go around the chair instead of slats. I also did mine with 2 layers of felt. The tutorial called for felt on the outside and cotton/interfacing on the inside. With 2 layers of felt it didn't need to be interfaced. I did the ric rac one with red felt on the inside, and the ruffle one with white on the inside. I used felt since I had tons left over from advent calendar making. The tutorial was easy to follow. I love the way they turned out, and Andy seems to as well!
