Bella’s Book Bag

Right, I missed one day of blogging. Yesterday felt like one quick blur and before I knew it I was in bed and too tired to even think about a blog post. Never mind.

Today Little Miss Bossy-Boots is invited to her little friend Bella’s fifth birthday party. Now I don’t know about you but my go-to gift for kids is always books. I love books, always have, and believe that it’s very difficult to be bored when you have the ability to read.

We got Bella “The Snail and the Whale” by Julia Donaldson (which is one of my favourites!) and I made a quick and easy reversible book bag to put it in. The stripy fabric is a vintage pillow case, the glittery Disney Princess was given to me by a friend.

The stripy side has a big pocket for a library card or some tissues.

Stripy handles and a little stripy flower finish it off. The princess fabric is more see-through than I realised. The stripes shimmer through even though I used some sew in interlining. Never mind.

  1. Oh my, it’s so much fu. seeing the same book through some one else’s eyes…. I love it, too! It’s “Die Schnecke und der Buckelwal” in German and we say thats it’s from Axel Scheffler – the illustrater is a native German that now lives in London :o)
    I neber made a book bag but it’s a great idea that I’m going to try soon.
