Cars favor bags!

For V’s 2nd birthday playdate, blogged about here, we invited 3 kiddos to play at the community center.  Because I just can’t have a “party” without a goody bag – and because V is always carrying 2 or 3 or 4 cars around in his little hands, I decided to make each of the kids a personalized cars tote.

I bought Lighting McQueen fabric a while ago at Walmart and poor V would grab it off my shelf and bring it over to me… I guess asking Mommy to make him something with it.  So I did!!

Its a small tote perfect for little hands and with plenty of room to fill with cars or whatever!  On the outside I appliqued each child’s first initial and even added a ruffle to Miss P’s bag – every girl needs ruffles!!

On the inside I added 6 pockets to tuck in cars or other treasures!

of course I filled the totes with a “Cars” car, plus some treats, big washable crayons (hey they are 2!), a mini homemade cars coloring book, cars stickers and cars tattoos. SONY DSC

They turned out pretty adorable and should be pretty useful for the kiddos!!

I am thinking about making up a little tutorial on how to make your own little tote with pockets – so check back soon!!

    Oh Jeni! These are the CUTEST thing! It looks like the kids had a blast. Sad Greyson couldn’t make it. What a wonderful gift you have and how wonderful that you can share such sweet memories with your babes. I envy your craftiness. 🙂
