This is another project I have been hoarding for months actually. I guess my project archives needed a little spring cleaning, too!
Ever since we began Mommy School, I have become a library book hog. I reserve every book I can find that goes along with our selected theme. I often leave the library with 20+ books. Trying to carry Little Man plus the books was quite the juggling act. I definitely needed a bag to tote around all of those books! And nothing says reading like a wise old owl.
And now Little Man has learned to tote around HIS favorite toys in this bag, too!
I used a freezer paper stencil to paint the words on one side of the bag. I thought I was so clever to dream up this little owl pun! (Can you tell we have been using our bag for a few months now?! It's already dirty!)
On the flip side, I sewed on this owl applique. I raided my fabric scraps to design this little owl. Isn't he a sweet?!
Here's the "little hoot" himself! He makes me laugh. Just the other day, we were leaving for a meeting, and he grabbed his owl tote and started throwing in some of his favorite toys. He figured out how to carry the bag on his shoulder, and he thinks he is pretty hot stuff!
Friday is almost here. Hooray for that!
