It’s another bagstravaganza!
I was taken by surprise last year at kiddie second Christmas Easter when all the grown-ups brought piles of goodies for the kids, and I was determined to be a good adult this year and have treats for my younger cousins. But I was also feeling a little poor, so I made bags that I hoped would be cute enough to distract from the fact that they were also a mite small. I could only fit a box of sidewalk chalk, a large box of Nerds, and a couple of little packets of SweetTarts in each… whoopsie!
These are all based on another wonderful Pink Penguin tutorial, except I made the bags all different heights and the bag handles longer. Cosmo’s was the smallest, and I accidentally only remembered to get him one Easter yummy, so I made him a love bird.
I used satin for the back and put little paper hearts in the pocket that said, “Mommy loves you,” “Daddy loves you,” and “Sunshine loves you.” He carried his chickie throughout the weekend, rubbing it against his cheek and taking the hearts out and “reading” them. It made me happy!
Oh, and here are some gratuitous shots of some bag interiors; since I wasn’t super chintzy and used nice fabric this time (sometimes when I make the kids bags, I just use osnaburg inside since I figure they won’t care), heh.
Oh, but back to the cousins’ Easter stuff — two of my younger cousins are too old to want toys and things, so I folded them little $10 baskets and put two little chocolate eggs in, which I forgot to take a picture of, but were awfully cute, if I do say so myself. And I’m sure they appreciated the money more than they would have little fabric bags, hah!
