Nephew's School Bag

Is everyone just too busy sewing and playing to post about it? It's been awfully quiet here. My nephew turned four yesterday, so I made this cute book bag for him. I now have plans for my niece who is five next week ... it was really fun!

Zebras are his favorite. This was great - I traced it onto fabric, colored it with crayons, then ironed it (make sure you put a paper towel over the picture so you don't get wax on your iron).

This inside fabric is probably my favorite. They only had the bright red straps, so that was a little disappointing, but I think it will be fine.
