So my 5 year old wanted a bag as well. This is what I came up with. The handles were done right this time. But this time, I end up sewing the pockets on the wrong side. Good thing Lyn does not mind that the pockets were a bit wacky on this one.
The lining needed some pressing obviously. I tried to sew together girlie colors and Lyn was happy with it. Which is great. Notice the handles they came out as well when I turned everything right side out. YEAY!!!
These are the two bags I made so far.
