Read Bag!

When I saw this bag posted on sewforum.com I knew I had to make them for my 2 daughters.  They are both avid readers, as myself!  We frequent Barnes and Noble or the library and this bag would be so adorable to “tote” around carrying the latest novel.  It is just large enough to fit a magazine, too.  Perfect.

My oldest daughter and I both received e-readers for Christmas.  I LOVE my e-reader as does she.  My DD said to me, “Mommy, I love the e-reader, but there is just something about the feel and smell of a good book(hard copy)”  Can a mother be SO proud!  In a world where everything is computerized, I think this is an awesome thought for her age group.  (As it is my feeling, too, about a “real” book in my hands).  Her e-reader can fit in this bag, too!

I chose fabrics that my 2 DD’s would like and they coordinate with their lunch bags that I made them, too!

Remember, these…..
