Nothing like leaving things to the last minute! But I finally decided to make my kid’s teachers the Lickety Split Bag from Made by Rae. I love the look of the bag, and the name sounded promising for a procrastinator.
And Rae was right. This bag not only sews up lickety split, it is a wonderful bag pattern. The instructions are clear and easy. They couldn’t have been nicer to follow.
I made two, and I must say, I like the feel of the heavier Oz by Sanae from Moda fabric in the bag shown above. It gives the bag a little extra weight. I let my son pick the fabric for that bag, and I think he did well.
The other bag fabric was Lotus by Amy Butler, which I love, for the second bag. And it turned out a very elegant.
I hope the bags will be useful in carrying books… or other supplies back and forth to school next year.
Last night after I finished them, I lay awake thinking of puns to put on a card…
“You’ve filled me with knowledge…”
“You’ve carried me on your shoulder this year…”
“My heart is split in two that this year is over…”
And I have one thing to say… it’s a good thing I didn’t act on my 1:30 am thoughts.
I think we’ll just settle on “Thank you.”
