Scrappy Canvas Bag

I made the cutest canvas bag for my niece, Jolene.
She turns six this month! I got the bag pre-made from Hob Lob...
they have so many to choose from!
I hand appliqued her name and
this whimsy flower out of fabric scraps.
I added a button for the dot above the 'j'
and made a ruffle out of ribbon for the stem.
On the back is a little flower, too. Pretty cute, huh? I filled the bag with some great books every almost- first grader should have for the summer. One for her to read by herself, one to read with her parents, one chapter book for her parents to read to her, and then 'Down By The Bay" because she loves the song! Wow, seems like just yesterday she was 5 weeks old and I was baby sitting my first niece... and now she is six. Makes me wanna sing that song by Kenny Chesney... "Don't Blink"... ah-ha that would make a great scrapbook page!

Let's go make something,
