Transformers

Thanks to Tab's really good friends, he is obsessed with Transformers. He hasn't even seen the movie and doesn't fully know what it is about, but obsessed non-the-less. For Valentine's day he picked out Transformers hologram valentines to give to his friends. We had nearly an entire box left over and he has been carrying them around like trading cards for the past 2+ weeks.

I've been doing a ton of sewing and such for this baby and was feeling a little guilty that I didn't really make all that much for the boys when they were born. So I went back through my bookmarks for things that I wanted to make and decided to whip up a cool messenger bag using this tutorial. It was super easy. I would say that it was quick but it wasn't. Had I not appliqued the transformer on the front it would have been pretty quick. The applique part took a while and I didn't even do that great of a job on it. Oh well. Tab loves it and that is all that I wanted out of it.I also added a pocket to the inside with spots for markers or whatever.

That is so awesome! When you come home you will have to help me make a bunch of these bags!! I think they will be cute to give to Grandkids with some quiet toys for church!!

I'm sorry about the transformer thing. Alex is obsessed with Tab's trains if that makes you feel any better.
