So this adorable young man
is my 6 year old grandson David .
He asked me weeks ago to make him
a "Man bag" to carry his important "stuff".
His daddy has a bag for his laptop
and important paperwork,
so of course,
David needed one too.
It had to be red.....
his new favorite color :)
Luckily I had this ultra cool Batman fabric
with a red background in my stash,
waiting for just such an occasion!
I wanted it to look rugged and "manly"
so I used heavy red canvas for the outside
and black cotton webbing for the shoulder strap
with just a hint of the Batman fabric for some fun on the flap.
The interior is fully lined in the Batman print.
I made one pocket on the front
to carry his Awana ID card
and any other important documents he needs to bring along.
He's super excited about his new bag.
He hasn't taken it off except to sleep last night :)
It totally makes me smile to see him so happy!
Now his little sister wants one
and she's already picked out Disney Little Mermaid fabric
from Nana's stash for her bag.
Good thing I drew up a pattern while I was
making David's bag :)
Evie's bag will be a girlier verson of the same bag.
I'll offer the Pdf pattern in my etsy shop
once I have a chance to type it all up.
