Handy pocket bag

I decided ages ago that my delightful daughter needed a bag of her own. One that was easy to get into, without a flap to get in the way of the treasures which constantly need carting about.

Enter the cargo pocket bag! We always have cast-off trousers that my husband has worn out (or bleach stained, as in the case of this pair), and I thought the side pocket would do perfectly. So I cut the whole thing off, reversed the back panel, added a lining, some bias binding and a strap. Ta dah! One bag, fit for the treasures of an 18-month-old munchkin.

Yes, I have used different colours of bobbin threads. Sometimes I get lazy!

The strap even has extra length. I can just move the velcro on the strap to a new position, and the bag will grow with her!

It was love at first wear.

Priceless grin.

Ahhh, that's really lovely! I've got a big pile of jeans which don't fit us anymore - destined to be turned into bags and other stuff at some point :-)
