Bags day

This last Friday one of Henry's teachers made me one of the most happy women in the world, lol... She asked me if I could make Henry's tutor a bag for her birthday day. They wanted to gift her a book bag and they like the bags I've made for Henry to carry to school.
I was soooooo excited that I didn't hear well the exact day f the birthday so this weekend I've been thinking and thinking what to make for her. 
First I thought about making a simple book tote but then remembered that tutorial I saw once in this wonderful blog! And that's how the bag looks like. I choose this combination of fabrics from Michael Miller's Ginger Blossom line. For the outside I choose this wonderful tile and for the lining this wonderful plaid in matching colors.

The pattern was so easy to work with and I loved the inside pocket size. I made 3 sections to hold mobile phone, pens, etc... I also used a bone button for the closure. 

I really, really hope she'll like it! I had a blast making it and, most of all, I have enjoyed soooo much thinking about it. I feel so honored because I was asked to do this for her. Really, really proud. She has helped my kid so much and I feel like if I'm able to give her a bit of the love she gives to my kid every day.

Oh, and once the sewing machine was working I had to get a bit more from her, lol... 
This next week is Halloween night! Oh yes, I know you didn't know but IT IS!!! lol...
Well, my kid wanted... No, he HOPELESSLY NEEDED a Batman costume for Halloween and finally on Saturday we found one for him (he wanted to sleep with it that night) and now he's always asking me when is the Halloween party... So I decided to make a bag for school so he can carry his juice and water in this fun bag! I made it using a panel I bought in one of the sales at equilter and I was delighted with it. I also used a pumpkin fabric I had from last year's Halloween for the lining and it really is so sweet!


And that was it! My bag-Sunday...

Pues claro que le va a encantar ese bolso a la profe de tu niño!!!! sin duda...
La lana Malabrigo es una pasada. Me encnata la seleccion de colores que tienen a la venta y el tacto del merino para lace que estoy usando es riquisimo... Tengo otro ovillo tambien de merino pero bastante mas grueso teñido en varios tonos de verde y violeta oscuro. Lo guardo para algo especial.
Si puedes probarla, te aconsejo queu lo hagas.
