Valentines bags

I saw these bags on a few sites and fell in love! I knew I had to have them. So I was crossing my fingers in hopes that I had some fabric that would work since I am not buying any new fabric unless absolutely necessary. I found some red sweater material, red polka dot, and red camouflage. I had sever different types of interfacing so I made it work.

My only little snag was I chose to do 2 red dot linnings and the camouflage one for the little guy (not so girly). But of course Austin chose to take one of the polka dot ones!! I would have made them all polka dot if I had known. I guess I also could have done a better job on the names. I should have just waited a few weeks...I just found out I am getting a Silhouette....Yea I am so excited.
The plan is to put a little love note for the kids in the am, and then when Valentines day arrives there will be just a few little surprises for the kido's

I really did iron my fabric this time, I promise:)

I found this great tutorial for the bags at Our Scoop
