Quote of the Day:
Elephants and grandchildren never forget.
My child's bag was a hit. You can't really see it very well here. But there are other pictures in the previous post to this one. Lily is 2 1/2 and she loved it. But I had a friend that also has a Lily as a grandchild and she wanted one for her Lily. Her Lily is 9 and lives 500 miles away from me. So I used some local 9 to 10 year olds and made adjustments to both the shoulder strap and the size of the bag itself. The following is the link to the pattern for the bag I used for my granddaughter.
I just added 3 inches to everything on the bag part and made the strap 31 inches long compared to the 26 inches is said to make for my Lily. On my Lily's bag I made her name in Block Letters. As a 2 1/2 year old, she'll be learning letters and such soon, knowing her mother. But with the 9 year old Lily's bag I used script lettering.
I also used the Lily embroidery as that is what my friend asked me to do. No problem. For my Lily, she got butterflies because that what she likes.
The point of all this is let you know who easy this free pattern is and how versatile it can be.
Thank you for letting me share.
