Another ABC I-Spy Book!

When it came time to pay for my fabulous new bag,
Jen suggested that we "do tradesies" instead. FABULOUS idea! She picked an ABC I-Spy book for her adorable daughter Avery!


I modified my original version, adding a velcro tab closure and handle. I'm very happy with how it turned out -- and I love that alphabet fabric for the cover!


Airplane, Butterflies, Clouds, Ducks, Elephant, Fish, Guitars, Hands, Ice cream cone, Jigsaw puzzle, Kites, Ladybugs, Moon, Numbers, Ostrich, Penguins, Quilt, Rabbits, Stars, Tennis rackets/balls, Unicorn, Volleyball, Watermelon, eXit sign, Yarn, Zebras!


I love the handle!!

It was so much fun making this one, I think maaaaaaaybe I could make a few more! :o)
