Boys. Books. Bag : :

I explained last week that I decided to challenge myself to create more boy items. Here is the first --- a tote bag for our frequent trips to the public library, which conveniently is right around the corner. I find myself, several times a week, scrambling to find our checked out books. I have designated spots all throughout our home where they are to be kept when they are not being used and none have yet to be successful. So, this little bag is to hang all summer long by the door. We'll see how it works, but I have seen a similar idea that turned into many special bags for all sorts of things. Misplaced library books, no more!
Jacob has already claimed this bag as his and has ( much to his sewing mama's delight ) brought it along everywhere we went this busy weekend. We already all agree this bag was a good idea...
and that this is our favorite part. : )
 My head is still spinning over the list the boys gave me, but I think I may have the "jet pack" idea figured out. I'm hoping to have it finished for next weeks "boy" post, stay tuned....
