Day 123 – April 23
So I started this post 3 months ago, and then totally forgot to upload the pics and actually post it! Oops!
We just got back from a little extended weekend outing. I flew solo with the three babes, which was quite the adventure. To make things easier, I thought it would be wise to have a variety of activities for the babes for the plane. I wasn’t particularly interested in lugging all of their stuff around, and their toddler backpacks were too small. Sooo, I decided to make them messenger bags. I found this tute over at ikat bag I made a few modifications. Rather than using webbing for the strap, I made a fabric strap. I wanted to add a zippered pocket, but I didn’t have time. I did, however, manage to add a mesh pocket on the side for their water bottles. They picked out their own fabric, and I think they turned out pretty well. From the first cut to the final stitch, it took me about 4 hours, so not too bad, especially with all of the interruptions.
And, here are a few pics.
