On our list of gifts to make this year, are two boy activity bags. My daughter made this bag for herself last year, and we are going to use the same style for the little boys. We are trying to find the perfect little piece of fabric for the boy bags. This bag holds standard size coloring books or notebooks inside, and has small crayon pockets on the outside. My daughter uses some of the bottom crayon pockets for pens, pencils, and lip gloss. The bag is fully lined, with a piece of felt between for the quilted fee. On the back, she chose a fun setting on the sewing machine to do her quilting lines. Total assembly and sewing took her two days. She spent about two hours each day on the project. I think for being nine, she did a AWESOME job! I can't wait to see the boy bags!
