Toy Bags

I bought this fabric a few months ago intending to make toy bags for Micah. Somehow, I never got around to it. I may or may not have bought him a toy at Christmas that has pieces. Pieces that can get lost. Pieces that need a bag. 
Remembering that I meant to sew bags, I finally pulled this fabric back out and did it.
 I really love these little robots.
 I bought what ended up being a very scant half yard. I used it all. The drawstring bag is unlined with a clean finish seam. The zipper bag is lined with Kona cotton. I wasn't sure there would be enough so I even use the selvedge edge for the strap. Instead of hiding the writing, I let it show. 
This was my first splurge on Kokka fabrics. It's a linen/cotton blend and sews beautifully.


  1. These are so cute! I love it when selvage is incorporated into a project! Awesome lil robots!

  2. Love them! I have a question, though. On the zippered one, why does the zipper not go all the way from end to end? Is the fabric there intended to act as a stopper?

  3. I love the robots!!! Great idea to use the selvage on the strap. I have a jar of selvages just in case I ever want to do a project with them... maybe like Deana's pillow that one time. Anyway, love the bags!

  4. Do you ever great tired of me saying "adorable?"
