I finally got some sewing done yesterday which, to be honest, is kinda funny because yesterday was one of those days that pregnancy kicks your butt. But hey, I'll take what I can get. I've been wanting to make Aubrey a library tote since, well, she got her very first library card a few weeks ago :)
She's so cute when we're there, just wandering and grabbing books, not really looking at them and just shoving them in the bag!
Random Story--- on our first visit to the library, Aubrey was doing her thing and picking books. We did a quick once over and got rid of a few we didn't like/agree with and Zach saw one that said, "getting ready for the new baby" and he's like, "oh that should be good" and I agreed.....well, little did we know, but it was some crazy random book about kids feeling left out because of the new baby and addressing why they don't like their baby brother/sister(I really don't want to fill her head with those thoughts because she hasn't uttered a peep about it yet).
But the worst part?? It explained (in depth!) the birds and the bees!....with pictures(of animals oddly enough)?!? WHHHATT? It was totally geared towards Aubrey's age too, I want to know who tells their child at 3 ALL the ins and outs of procreation?!? Seriously??
Anyway, back to the tote... I wanted it to give it a little somethin' somethin', so I added her initial and a few cute buttons to the front pocket(which I wish wasn't that purple color, but hey, whatcha gonna do now).
And there's a cute little pocket inside for her own personal library card :)
I used some Amy Butler fabric from her Love line and I wish I had bought more than just a yard of this when it was on sale at the local fabric store back in NJ. I absolutely love (haha, get it??) this fabric!
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but Aubrey's even happier! And that's what matters most.
