WOW...I am SO glad that the weekend is here and that my hubby is now home again! It was a crazy, busy week while he was in Georgia for work BUT I survived! While he was gone I finished the presents I made for our moms...I know...its a week late! BUT I did them, right?!
First off I purchased these items at Joannes and then found the bags at Michael's for under $10!
Pictured is co-ordinating fabrics for each bag (I ended up using 2 fabrics per bag instead of 3), fabric paints (I used a different color per child), and fabric markers (My first time using them and they are pretty cool!).
My idea behind the bags were I wanted one side to be "cutesy" kid made bags that Grandma would be excited to show off...but I wanted the other side to be pretty so that she can wear that side facing out if she wanted!
I started out by squirting fabric paint onto my child's hand...spreading it out with a paint brush (I had kid brushes nearby so I snagged theirs!). I made sure to have a nice thick amount of paint on each kiddos hands and that it was brushed perfectly over the palm, heel and fingers.
