The background fabric was purchased from Jen at Beebee Mod several months ago. My original plans for it was to use it as a lining for a "treasure chest" I was going to make for our grandson Mr. J. I had bought a couple of wooden silverware cases at an auction for $1. Despite sanding and ripping out the existing lining, I couldn't get rid of the moldy smell and that project was abandoned.
The striped fabric and the fabric for the wheels was purchased in a "pound of fabric scraps" from the etsy shop Ellie Bleu (another of Jen's ventures).
This was my first attempt at lining, which didn't go too badly. Not perfect, but I don't think Mr. J will complain. (the standards of a 3 year old being a little different). I even managed to make a double pocket on the inside of the bag so he can put some little treasures into the bag too.
So, this will wait until his birthday party in March and we'll put some little cars and trucks in it. I think he'll like it.
What do you think?
