My Own Little Bag Project

Here's my latest craft project - this one is for Josh!

Josh needs his own little bag to carry some wipes and a diaper when he goes to the nursery or just somewhere 'by himself'.  Because he and Nate don't always go into the same nursery now, depending on what church we go to, I can't always use one diaper bag so this is perfect and he can carry it!
You will need: Stencils, Paint, Brush or sponge, buttons, and a bag - my mom gave me this one awhile ago and it was perfect for this task!

First, I used packing tape to mark my line placement as well as to hold the bag to the table.

I lined up the stencils and painted away.  I decided to use a big button for the "O" in Josh.

Sorry this is sideways but you get the idea :-)

And the final product - buttons for both "O"'s as well as two buttons by the handles.  Now, I don't have to worry about the bag getting lost - his name is very clearly identified!

I think I need to make another one for our library books . .. and maybe for church . . .and . . .so many ideas!!
