When I made Perfect Quilted Totes for my daughters teachers last week, I knew I wanted to try a smaller version for my kids.  I shrunk the measurements in the pattern by 25% and it was the perfect size for little kids.

I made my son's first as a test, since I was concerned that it would turn out weird.  The only measurement I didn't shrink by 25% was the straps because I thought they would be too short, so I shrunk them by about 10% and I regret it.  The full 25% was perfect when I made my daughter's bag.

My favorite thing about the pattern is the interior, and I think the pockets will be great for my kids.

My daughter loves green, which is probably my least favorite color and I hardly have any in my stash.  I ended up picking up some Kona clover for the lining (which I forgot to take a picture of) since I didn't put much green on the exterior.

These will go under the Christmas tree along with a couple of wide open zippered pouches that I made today.  My machine is now put away until after Christmas so I don't accidentally start any new projects :)

  1. Haha, accidently start. That sneaky fabric escaping and leaping under your machine. Mine lurks in corners until it can jump my rotary cutter. The bags look great and I like the wide open pouches.

  2. Love that term- accidentially start. Perfect! Love the car fabric!
