Library bag, Lego and swap (oh my)...or my creative space


We needed a new family library bag and I have a ton of this hessian from my SILs birthday party a few years ago, so I added some red and white polka dots (can't go wrong with them) and made one. We usually get about 20 books so it had to be big and solid which it is...ask the sewing machine




We all watched James May's Toys the other night, the one with the huge Lego house. Joe got the bug and straight away made a small version with a light (iphone) on the roof, so clever. It even had a little table and chairs inside.


Here's a sneak peek at the pin cushion I've made for Fox's Lane Pin Cushion Swap. Hope my swap partner likes it!

We need a Library bag as big and strong as that as we seem to come home with about 20 books also!! Both my boys are real book worms tho so I am happy :-)

Great bag. Just visited the library today so you've got me thinking.

Great big bag - I am sure lots and lots of books will fit in there - love the red with white dots.

And that little lego table is so so cute.

Wicked library bag!! Something about the rawness of hessian is very appealing. Better still it's recycled woohoo... Meanwhile how do you carry 20 books? My kids always choose the biggest and heaviest books to bring home...

Oh yes your bag is special! Always love the look of the colour "linen" and red together, esp when the red is in polka dots! Really lovely Hannah.
Now that swap pic is a real tease! I'll definitely have to visit the flickr site to see how they all turn out. :)
