Frozen is a very popular movie for kids. I haven't seen it but I sort of know it is about sisters. JoAnn's advertised Frozen fabric on sale. So I thought I would see about making a bag for Claire using Frozen fabric. I got a yard and figured I surely could make a good size bag out of a yard and have enough for lining.
I didn't have a pattern. So I was flying by the seat of my pants here. I have some stuff to use as interfacing inside the bag. It is called Soft and Stable. I didn't know how to use it. I have a bag for me all cut out and I just didn't know how to proceed. So the internet came to my rescue. I googled it and low and behold a photo helped me see how to work with it.
It turned out pretty well (but don't look too closely!) I wasn't sure where to put the seam. I wanted it to be at the edge of the side and not be noticeable.
It didn't quite work out that way but it is fine for what I need. I filled the bag with books and toys and a Frozen shirt.
The Soft and Stable worked like a charm and gave the bag enough oomph to make it stand up on its own. It is a bit big for a small child but it holds all the stuff that I wanted it to. I hope she likes it.
I've been walking at the park. I've gotten stuff at the Farmer's Market. I've paid the bills. Is it time to stitch yet? You betcha.
