Little Girl Sew Together Bag

Seems I'm on a bit of a bag-making kick lately...

This Little Girl Sew Together Bag was a collaboration with my 8yr old.  Can you tell?  When I asked her if she wanted one of these super cool bags she said, "Will you let me pick the fabrics?"
Sure thing!!

Little Girl Sew Together Bag
As you know, 8yr old girls are into things that fit into the cute, fluffy, snuggly, sparkly, rainbow, or candy-colored categories.  It's a universal theme, I'm guessing. :)  
So she found woodland creatures for the outside. (cute and fluffy categories)

For the insides she went with candy-colored and cute.
 The hardest part for her was whittling down her stack of favorite fabrics.  In fact, she chose a different fabric for each element.  Eleven fabrics total!

Even the rarely seen inside pockets are alphabet cute for my little school girl! 

 This is actually the third sew together bag I've made. 
I have at least one more to share in the coming weeks... for my newly minted teenage daughter. :)

I think it's awesome. Her fabric choices are fabulous! Every time I see one of these bags I feel bad that I haven't made one yet... Someday!

You're killing me with these bags! I love all of her fabric choices (and why wouldn't one use a different fabric for each element?! ;-) I also love how, even though you have this mish-mash of fabrics, you're arranged them so that there is a cohesiveness to it all.
Looking forward to the next one :-)
