Read, My Friend!




Have had so much fun making these guys. Library bags for the reading types in the family - gotta have somewhere to stash your 20 books you can take out on one library card...made from reclaimed grey weird durable strong-like fabric and various vintage and other 'hanging out in the scraps box because they are too lovely to throw out' off cuts. Little handprinted speech bubble to finish off the bird and butterfly bags. Edie loves them so much - but they are way too big for her - so I am going to make some little ones - for little readers (and carriers). Yes, preparation for Niche- All wrapped up is definately in full swing!

These bags are gorgeous - lovely idea. Good luck at Niche - sounds like a fabulous line-up of artists.
