One of the things I said I wanted to make for each of the kids for summer was a bag to carry their stuff in. I found these really cute bags at Dollar Tree and I couldn’t resist them especially for a dollar.
Originally I wanted to monogram the bags the same way I did Alyssa’s shirt, but I had issues hooping the bags. For some reason I couldn’t get the bag to hoop.
Taylor and I went to Hobby Lobby to find some fabric for their initials for the bags. I told her I wanted some fabric that would look good on all four bags. I wanted it to be the same fabric so all four bags would coordinate. I also told her it couldn’t be too girlie. At first she told me everything was too girlie then she found this fabric that was the prefect match. It has all the different colors and its not girlie.
I used heat bond on the back of the fabric then I used my Cricut to cut out each child’s initial. Using the heat bond I was able to easily iron the initial onto the bags and it looks great. All the kids love them. Also they match the kids’ water bottles that I made them. I used the same font with my Cricut for these that I used for the water bottles.
