What is the perfect size for a tote bag? If your are a teacher, the bigger the better! For a bible carrier - just enough room for a notebook and your bible, of course. Maybe with a little side pocket for your pen. For a reusable gift bag something small with a little strap for closing. There are many different uses and ideas. Here are a few I came up with:
This is a large bag featuring four original drawings of owls, fully lined and big enough for a lot of stuff.
Black Medium bag fully lined with a fabric print of a barn owl family painting and scripture verse. Tan canvas bags with original drawings of 'bees' appliquéd on front.
Reusable fully lined gift bag featuring an original pen and ink drawing on front.
I purchased the pattern Grace's Gifts: Sweet Sandals by Becky Colvin. These little sandals fit 14.5" doll like the Wellie Wisher and Heart for Heart dolls. As I began making a pair I ended up changing the heel area to a tab and also trying different straps across the toe. These stay on the doll's foot nicely because the tab is strong being made of a fabric sewn over card stock. It would be frustrating for a child to have the shoes slipping off when trying to dress her doll. Even the shoe with the band across the toe stays on the doll pretty well since I made them fit tightly. See the last picture for the snug fit.
I plan to have matching shoes to go with my english smocked dresses in my shop. There are about 10 different smocked pieces on my worktable right now but at least two finished dresses are presently available.
