I have actually made this project before. When I posted it on my blog my sister in law asked that I make one for my niece. DJ just turned 8 in March and is getting baptized this Saturday. My brother is in the military and his family lives in SC. So I won’t be able to attend the baptism. But I am sure she will just love this when my mom gives it to her on Saturday. DJ’s favorite color is blue and she hates anything girly or frilly. So I chose to go with this cat in the hat print. I love the way it turned out. I almost want to keep it for myself. You can find the tutorial for this project HERE. Some things that I did different are:
-I didn’t use fabric for the handles. Instead I used a yard and a quarter of nylon webbing. You could also so a ruffle down the middle of the handles to hand something extra to it.
-I cut the width 14 1/2″ not 15″ and left a 3″ opening in the bottom. It made it a little easier to close up and not so bulky.
These are just my suggestions. I thought that the tutorial was awesome and will probably make some more!
