The other day, a friend of mine posted on Facebook, "took the kids to buy crafts to get us through June, and they blew through half of them yesterday. It might be cheaper to put them in camp." I posted these links on her wall and realized that I need to spend some time with them myself as yesterday Zadie tells me, "after nap I wanna make a craft, a gluing craft."
These are my three favorite sites.

Anybody have any good resources for kids crafts aside from loading up on pre-packaged kits from the store?

Anyway, above is the photo of the bag in action. I am reading our guidebook while we stopped for a snack.

There are definitely a few things I'd change if I make this bag again. I didn't add interfacing to the top panel and that was a big mistake. The pocket on the inside is a bit small. But I enjoyed making something for myself for once -- and actually using it.

The bag I designed has a finished size of 16" wide at the bottom (4" deep -- it's a box bottom shape). At the top it's about 14" wide with two nice box pleats. I might finish off the top with a wide-ish band to keep it clean. I'm still not sure about what I'll do for pockets on the inside or if I'm going with one strap or two but I'm hoping that will be a little easier. I hope to post pics when I'm finished.
