Screen printed & crochet granny square library bag

Miss 'E' started Kindy this year, and was terribly excited about needing a library bag. She is always 'needing' a new bag of some description and this time she knew her needs were warranted! I wanted her to have a pretty little library bag that was easily distinguished from the others. And I wasn't bowing to the pressure of buying a mass produced, licensed character one!

This is what we came up with.

A blank calico bag, a few crochet granny squares, an appliqu├ęd letter 'E', a little bit of ric rac, a fabric scrap, some grosgrain ribbon and a handful of vintage buttons.

A beautiful vintage style gocco screen print.

And it was finished.
