As I mentioned, I am making several gifts for my girls this Christmas. I have already completed the doll houses and I Spy pillows. Next to be checked off of the to do list are the book bags. I had intended on making the bags for the little girls, but this past weekend Coco saw the pattern that I had made and decided that she would like to have one too. So, I made three. These will be the girls' new library bags. I will shorten the strap after they receive them. I did not do a cross body measurement and I don't want to make the straps to short. I think that they turned out really cute. I hope that the girls like them.
