This week's Iron Craft theme was "Green". We could either craft something using the color green or reuse something in a unique and crafty "green" way. I decided to go with the color theme. I already had a set of fat quarters in my stash in shades of green that I knew I wanted to use. I love love love anything with birds or botanical prints. My bestie refers to this as my love of "old lady stuff" and regularly reminds me that I am still under the age of 70. For my part, I blatantly ignore her and nail another butterfly picture to the wall.
Anyway, I decided to make a little "Nature Bag" for all of the treasures the kids collect on our walks in the park and around the neighborhood. I found this great tutorial. It was such a quick and easy project, that I ended up making two more so that they could each have their own. I used three different fabrics for each to make the outer bag, lining and handles in coordinating prints. It was the perfect use for my stack of fat quarters. I left the gussets out of Aidan's to give it a "manlier" totebag feel... that is, if a "Nature Bag" can really have that manly of a feel to begin with!
