We're trying to settle into a routine around here so, since Monday's are R's piano lesson in town, we'll make it our library day, too. I started sewing these book bags when we were in Seattle in July out of some fabrics that I still had stashed there at my parents house, a denim colored canvas, lined with another light colored tan and white pinstripe. While we were there we went to the Bellevue Arts Fair particularly because the Bellevue Art Museum was having a kids' craft day where the boys did these blue sunprint fabric pieces. I zig zag stitched them onto black denim for a pocket to hold library cards and due date receipts. All this was done in an attempt to create some order and to, hopefully, avoid late fees. While I was at it, I made a bag for myself, lined with the dark brown daisy-flowered fabric on the pocket.
Now, I just need to find a convenient place to install what they're going to hang from. A friend of mine gave me the thrifted garden faucet handles for Christmas one year and C fixed them to a board for me. I temporarily hung it where it is above only for the picture.
Our town library feels oddly like home sometimes since C built all the shelving for it when it was remodeled a few years back. Although the library can't be even half the size of our house, which isn't quite 1,300 square feet itself, apparently it still has plenty to offer, as you can see R here walking ever... so... slowly... from the car to the house entranced by a Dr. Seuss book. I could barely coax him out of the car.
