The Lego Bag
I was recently visiting a friend when her husband announced that in his opinion there was nothing worse than stepping on lego (nothing!). He then went on to recount numerous lego-stepping experiences that seemed to have scarred him for life. After listening to his woeful tales I decided to sew him (and his children) a lego bag. We had a lego bag very similar to this in our household when we were growing up. I had planned to make one for my children this Christmas - I figured I could kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
These bags are really quite fabulous because they triple up as a storage bag, carry bag and play mat. I used a heavy denim for the outside and starry cotton for the inside. I sewed loops of ribbons around the edges and had my 4 year old daughter thread through the cord. Voila!
