Remember this guy? I had plans for him all along. It's just taken me this long to figure out what to do with it.
The plan was to make an on-the-go carrier for a sippy cup, some bibs, a toddler fork and spoon, and some Fun Chops to keep in the car "just in case." I originally planned to make a drawstring bag, but was afraid of the linen fraying around the string. Then I thought of a zippered pouch, but I thought it might be wonky. Then I started thinking that a wristlet might be easier to carry with a strap. Then my idea morphed into a zippered tote. Then I realized I don't want to figure out a zipper and a handle (it was more than my brain could handle) and it turned into a regular tote.
That, my friends, is why it took over a month to make. The actual execution of the bag took very little time.
[Notes: The outer shell is linen and it is lined in little polka dots that are either navy or black. We bought the Fun Chops on eBay, after Carter got the blue pair from geocaching. They work and the kids love them.]
