|Gretel Fabric by Amy Smart for Riley Blake Designs|
It's absolutely darling, cute, and nostalgic. I decided to make what I call a - busy bag for girls on the go (or Mom's like me). It can hold all the essentials - apple juice boxes, hot wheels, little dollies, wallet, and phone (yes, in this order because Mommy's essentials take a back seat to kids essentials).
Here's what I made:

So many of you have asked me, is there a pattern for your project, and sadly, no! My process of creating bags and projects in general starts off with deciding what I want to use it for, sketching, measuring, creating rough pattern, and sew as I go along. My New Years resolution is to make patterns for all my projects (something long overdue). So hopefully, sometime this year I will have my patterns ready for all of you!
Here are some details of my process for the Busy Bag:
|Making the front panel|
|Making the zipper panel|
|Sewing the bag inside out, and praying it turns out okay!|

I hope you enjoyed my Gretel Busy Bag. Gretel really is adorable. I'm hoping in making a mini version for my daughter Rosalie!
