Plain, with contrasting thread and a pocket
This next one is pretty much like Ruffled version A (except bigger) but it was made from a T-Shirt with that design on it; I'm not talented/patient enough to add that myself!
Here's all the bags I whipped up last Thursday. (The two on the far left are both "Plain with contrasting thread and a pocket" (hmmm, I think that needs a better name))
If you look closely, you'll see a little army of paint bottles in the upper right corner of this pic.
Yes, my friends, I couldn't leave well enough alone...I had to decorate the bags too.
You see, my mom spent all last week at Cub Scout Day Camp. That left my 12-yr old twin brothers and 9-yr old sister with my 80 yr old grandmother. I decided Friday I would give her a break and do a project with the kids. So I stayed up until almost 11 (my kids are up at 6am, so I like to be in bed by 9 usually) to get all the bags sewn.
I also brought over some potatoes that were sprouting to use for potato stamps.
Seeing as I still don't trust them with a sharp utensil, I had them trace what they wanted and then I cut out the shapes. Of course they wanted ridiculously intricate things...I got them to compromise with a heart, peace sign, circle, moon, and the Green Lantern symbol. (It's a comic book character...I unfortunately know quite a bit about the Green Lantern since my hubby is just a big kid and actually has my 2 year old hooked on the Justice League. And she's a girl. But anyways.)
The kids in action...
I wasn't sure if my little Munchkin would want to do this, but luckily I came prepared with her apron just in case! She still managed to get paint on her sleeves of course.
