library bag for summer

     Garage sales and estate sale season again,  thank god.  A time to refashion and recycle others things to suit our needs.   This is the first in a series of projects for the boys for summer, a la elsie marley's kids clothes project for the month of may.   While I would have loved to sew a bag, when this heavy duty canvas bag presented itself for $1 I thought I can do something with that.  A simple freezer paper stencil over the printed logo made it a great library bag.  I was inspired by this fabric by Anna Maria Horner.   Now onto getting a library card for Felix, I think he's ready for the responsibility, and a new bag to put all of his books in.
