I'm sort of hooked on making skirts for Caris. They're so cute on her! Plus, since Lynette inspired me to applique shapes onto t-shirts for her, I can make up a matching outfit (using stash fabrics and a purchased t-shirt) for under $5!
Once the skirt was finished, Graham petitioned me for a bag like the tote I had made Caris the week before. We went through my fabrics and settled on a combination of denim, a surf print and a gray textured something or other. I asked if he'd like shorter handles on his tote - I figured it would look more boyish that way. He said no, that he wanted to be able to carry it like his "green bag" (a VERY old military style messenger bag). Duh, why hadn't I thought about making him a messenger bag?
He said he wanted a "G" on the front and that he wanted it to be frayed. I am so happy with the way it turned out!
