Makes: Horse Birthday Bag

I have been sewing stuff. Lots of stuff. Random stuff. It's pretty great. Last Saturday, my 10 year old went to a birthday party, horse back riding! It's like the coolest party ever, right? We had to get a present early, so we ran to target at 7 a.m. but they don't open until 8! No car for the rest of the day, so we had to plan and use what we had on hand.

Voila! My sweet pea did the design and kept me away from colors the girl hates (pink). We used a coloring page online we traced out and used wonder under to stick it to the fabric. Fully lined, fusible interlining, etc. For a last minute thing, didn't turn out to badly.

    1. Thanks so much! She loves all things horse, so we could have given her anything with a horse and she would have liked it. It was fun to make! I really rarely make bags, but they're so fun. I should do more.
