A little peek of Spring and a couple backpacks...

Spring is back in my neck of the woods...the weather is warming up and the clouds are pretty much gone...in fact...the forecast is for summer type weather by tomorrow!! I have done a bit of Spring decorating and here's a little peek...I have this little metal tray table in my living room and I like to keep something seasonal on it. I made this little mat last year right before Easter and this year I found these two bunnies... Mr.Bunny is so cute all dressed up in his finest...
And isn't Mrs. Bunny cute...they have just the right amount of glitter on them too...
Here is a close up of the little table mat.
I have two clients...brothers...who are 2 and 4 years old...they love baseball and trains and wanted backpacks their size...Don told me that my home plate wasn't correct...it's supposed to have a point on the bottom...I hope they won't notice...If I gave the pocket a point...I think things would get stuck in it...so I squared it off...I like it that way myself!
Here's a closeup of the glove and ball...two different wools make it look more real...this was a lot of fun!
Here's a peek of the inside...pockets all along one side...boys have lots of little things to carry too!
Here's the train backpack...
Both backpacks have adjustable straps that cinch at the top to close ...
A close up of the train...these two were lots of fun and right now I am working on little purses for three little girls...children's bags are more fun because they like just about everything...they love the bright colors and textures. I hope to finish up the girl's bags today, so I can garden a bit...with this warm weather...the outside is calling my name!

Enjoy the day, and I hope you find Spring where you are!!!

Hey Linda! I've been away from blogging for a bit, but now I'm back - just in time to tell you how adorable your table mat and bunnies are! I love them. And those two little backpacks are wonderful...you do such a beautiful job with the applique! Those two little boys are going to be so happy! And I think your home plate is just fine!!

I, too, love making bags for kids because they are so easy to please. Right now I'm also working on a bag for a little girl - she's two and wanted a "Fancy Nancy" bag to carry around with her. So fun!

Glad your weather has turned off nice...we were getting some nice, warmer weather but now we're back in winter - ugh!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Your rabbits are so cute.
Love the backpacks. I have an old pattern somewhere, I should get it out.
Your signiture wool appliques just make them.
Love the homeplate pocket...even with the squared off corner. LOL
I really enjoyed your "Spring Training" posts.
My hubby played pro baseball...minors only, but spent one spring training in the Brewer camp.
Brought back memories.
