Boy Color Book Bag





I made one of these a few posts back for my grand-daughter so ofcourse I needed one for my grand-son too. Boys are a challenge for me, since our family has many , many girls.. I love the challenge and actually like his bag betterthan hers, his holds colors books, crayons and cars. All the things a boy should love right. I sure hope so. I used the printable fabric sheets for the car patch..I let the ink run some to make it look worn and tattered like the bag..This is the last bit of blue jean fabric from my days of working in the blue jean factory in Iowa...You can use my home made pattern for the bag , down loaded from here Color Book Bag .

Grapics used by: PC Crafter Artist... Lori Lynn Simms

Fabric Patches



Printable Photo Fabric – I used Photo Fabric from Crafter’s Images
Bag of your choice
Sewing machine or fabric glue

Graphics used: Road Rippers by Lori Lynn Simms


1.) Choose graphics for patches, print onto fabric. Heat set according to package directions.
2.) Cut out and glue or sew on to bag.

You can make all kinds of fabric patches and fabric items with Creatables.

* I used a bag I made myself and applied patch before assembling
