fifteen down.....twelve to go!






This is what I've been working on in-between swaps and work.There are a total of 27 children heading off to school next year and I decided to make all of them library bags.Most of them I've known since they were babies and I couldn't let the signifigance of this pass without a gift for their new venture....School!!
I still have 12 to finish off and I'll be doing this over the next couple of weeks.
I'll be giving these bags out at the Children's Christmas party we hold each year (the second week in December) so wish me luck,I just may need it to get them all done in time!!

The bags are lovely Barb! What a wonderful gesture! I am sure they will be treasured, and they will think of the kind person that made their bag many years from now.! :-)
