This week one of my oldest friends is heading over for morning tea. She has a four year old so I have told her to come over ready to collect some eggs. (I have my fingers crossed that the girls won't let me down.) I saw this as excuse to get behind the sewing machine again: something that I love to do but don't seem to make the time. I came across a fabulous tutorial for a kid's messenger bag and thought this would make the perfect egg collecting bag as it fits half an egg carton.
The pattern is really straight forward and I am so pleased with the result. I would probably just change the way that I top stitch the lining but I figured that a four year old won't notice. Adding wadding to the strap is a great way to make it softer on a kiddoe's shoulder and give the strap so much more structure.
I have a few more of these planned for Christmas but will make the strap a little longer for older kiddoes.
What have you been making?'
