Biiiiiiig Library Bag!
Regular readers will probably know of my love for the Library. Once a week Roman and I walk down to the library for story time and to pick up whichever books take our fancy. The thing is, that library books are heavy! I mostly borrow non-fiction and usually choose books based on their covers - how very discriminatory of me! I take them home and then have a flick through. I'd love to flick through them while I'm at the Library, but Roman loves to pull all the books off the shelves, so it's best if I'm quick. This means I end up with a lot of books!
I normally throw them in the bottom of the pram, but the seams are starting to go on my basket, so I thought I should make up a library bag. I wanted it big! Roman loves the word 'big'! Big car, big blankie, now big library bag. It has nice thick straps so I can sling it over my shoulder comfortably and I put a little patch pocket inside to hold our Library cards.
The fabric is part of the newest range from Prints Charming. It's stocked at Spotlight and when I saw it out on the floor this week, I snapped some up right away. I love anything bright and colourful! The outer fabric is cotton drill and the inside is a cotton poplin. They're both lovely fabrics with a great silky feel. I think I'll have to get some more.
If you would like to make your own Big Library Tote Bag, you can find the pattern in my Shop.
