Little Bird Sweater Library Book Bag Tutorial

Little Bird Sweater Library Book Bag Tutorial

Little birds make me think of spring, so I made another library tote bag using my how to make a book bag tutorial. The base is made from a magenta sweater I found at a thrift store. If I could do it over again, I would change the complimenting floral pattern for one with colors that bring out more of the pinker side of the sweater and less of the maroon side. Pink is what I always go for if you can’t tell!

Little Bird Book Bag Tutorial 2

I’ve been making several trips to the library with this tote, filling it with books about canning, preserving, and of course crafting.

What makes you think of spring? Made any trips to the library lately? If so, what books make it into your bag?
