Lego Bag!

As one of my many Christmas projects this year, I decided to make a Lego Bag for my 4 year old boy. When I saw Lee's tutorial a few weeks ago, I knew our house HAD to have one! I am happy to say - it's done!! Yay!!!


Here's the outside of the bag. I used some left over Halloween fabrics (that weren't too Halloweenish, and some fabrics from my stash.


There's the inside! I happened to have this blue fabric in large quantities for a number of years. I don't remember what I originally bought it for, so now it has made a lovely inside for our bag/play mat!


My hubby had some cording and grommets, and I had a few cord locks on hand.

So, did you catch that? ALL of the fabric and supplies were taken from my stash, or already in my house, which (somehow) makes this bag free. ;)


Thanks again to Lee for this great tutorial!! I know it (and all the Lego's that are going to be inside of it) will be a big hit this Christmas!

Yay! That turned out great! I really need to get on one for my boys, especially since they're getting a big tub of K'nex for Christmas!

Haha. I love this post because it validates my sewing state too. If I've owned something for 6 months, the cost of acquiring is is cancelled. I love those somehow free projects. I wanted to make one of these for Stu for Christmas but I don't know if I'll get to it. You are much more prolific than I. Sad news about the dress. I hate it when that happens.

Your bag is lovely, I love the nature of this bag - it can lay flat and then can be 3 dimensional.
Oh, and I think that whenever you make something without a trip to the store, you should get a gold star!

Such a great idea! I really need about 15 of these throughout my house.
