Do It Yourself
Look at these cute bags.
We made them ourselves.
We took the idea from our favorite magazine - FamilyFun - so I cannot claim original creativity here.
It was so easy. (And it has to be for an amateur at the sewing machine such as myself.)
The kids all picked a favorite too-little t-shirt. I cut the bottom off and turned it inside out before stitching it together. (With purple thread because I have no idea how to change the bobbin thread. I need help with that. Soon. Yes, this is me begging. Don't teach me. Just do it for me.) I also trimmed down the neck and the sleeves for a more bag-like look and even stitched those for reinforcement, although you wouldn't have to actually do that step.
From a t-shirt to a bag in under ten minutes.
And Bergen has one too - with a print covered in trucks and bulldozers. But he wasn't exactly feeling photogenic when this photo shoot was arranged so we let him step away from the scene.
