batik bags

Really good friends of ours are parents to twin girls who are turning 7 this month.
We bought them some small gifts but I wanted to give them each something handmade as well. I decided on little bags to carry  small trinkets around with them.

I added a long strap to hang from the shoulder and a snap to keep them closed.

It was my first time sewing with batik fabrics and I think I might try to use them more often. They are stunning in person. These ones are from Benartex Fabrics. Bright, colourful and fun. And perfect for these girls. One favours pink and the other loves blue.

 What do you like to sew/make for this age-group?
