For this hop I made two things, one for my three boys and one for my husband, Paul, who isn't often the recipient when I'm making things.
Aiden and Zach needed a bag for carrying their piano books to their lessons and Nathan needed a new bag for carrying toys and books to church, so I made them a messenger bag. Yes, just one bag. They're very good at sharing.
Here is the front of the bag, under the flap...
I made this cross-stitch for Paul about 10 years ago, after he saw the pattern in a magazine I was using for another project. Then it got stuck in my trunk where I keep my fabric stash. And there it stayed. Every now and then I'd see it and think, "I should do something with that." But I'd move on again and these poor dogs would keep waiting for the right moment.
Be sure to check out the rest of the wonderful projects made by today's participants.
Thanks for stopping by!
