I am sad to see these totes go, but I know they will look good over the arms of two children carrying their library books. I was asked to produce them in denim, to match.

The boys one in his favorite colours red and blue, and the day before I picked up a vintage American stars and stripes bandanna in the charity shop (Perfect!).
The girls favorite colours are pink and turquoise so the Amy Butler fabric I have for the cupcake cushions fitted the bill perfectly.

I really wanted to get hold of pink strap webbing, but could not find any anywhere, only in red, blue, black, and white, which was fine for the boys tote, so opted to match them up so no fights over who's straps are better!
The bookworms were an added bonus as I thought they fitted the theme perfectly, just a little detail; the girl bookworm holds a pink book the boy bookworm holds a blue book.
I must say though small bookworms are fiddly to do!
If only my mum brought me bags like this when I was young, you may have not got me out of the library. Kx


I love to read all you comments, ideas and things that may even help out!
