More bags!

My kids have kept me busy making them bags.  I have now made this pattern 4 times.

Here are the first three. The grey one on the right is mine. It has a purple zipper and the inside is made from an old shirt that Ian wore but was ruined by sending it through the wash with a bright yellow piece of paper in the pocket.  Since it is one the inside I didn't care if the plaid fabric has a little yellow stain on it.

Ian's bag is the one in the middle and his has a blue lining. Sophie's bag I think is my best one yet. I made it out of a faded pair of black pants so it looks dark grey. Her lining is some fabric that I had in my stash and thought looked feminne and fun for her. I liked the red contrast to the grey.
I cut up yet another pair of pants for Henry's bag. I am not so sure of his. It was a light khaki color and I have a feeling it will quickly look really dirty.
I don't think he cares if it is dirty. He just loves having a bag of his own. I have another one cut out already. It is navy blue and a blue and yellow plaid lining. I don't know exactly what I am going to do with it yet. I may keep it for myself or give it away.  I am just really getting good at this pattern and think the bags turn out so cute.

I kind of wish you were selling these. I would buy one! Really! I want to make one, but don't know if I can do it. This is the kind of bag my son wants. They are very cute. I may just break down and get the pattern soon and give it a try.
