A bag for a 3 year old...

I had an order for a custom bag for a 3 year old...now at first I was really excited...then a bit nervous...it's been a long time since I was around a 3 year old...they are so trendy these days...but this 3 year old is typical...likes pink, Cinderella, butterflies, and flowers. I thought first of a princess theme...yes...princesses are always good...I found fabric I liked but I needed something to tie the princess together...everything was too corny, so I went with flowers and a butterfly...
Here's the back...even a wee one needs plenty of pockets...


Here is the lining fabric...this is really why I decided on the flowers...this fabric was just too darn happy! I thought about copying that silly bird...or the bike...maybe on the next one!


A patch pocket on the inside too...




Here's a close up of the fabric I picked...lots of fun there!!




A close up of the butterfly...oh there's some fuzz there...sorry...




A close up of one of the flowers...I copied the flowers from the button I chose...
I think it turned out happy and cheerful...something I would pick if I were 3! Now to see if the client likes it...I sure hope so...that is always my biggest fear...will they love it as much as I loved making it for them...we'll soon see...
Enjoy your day, my friends!!
