Coloring Book Bags.

My dear friend Diane’s son and daughter-in-law recently welcomed twins (a girl and a boy) to their family. I wanted to make something for the new arrivals and their big sister. I adapted the pattern, Large Coloring Bag., by Clothesline Quilts by using the Shirts pattern by Carolyn Friedlander. The coloring book pattern didn’t have a lining, but I wanted lining. It was easy to adapt that part of the pattern as well.

They turned out great:

For big sister:big sister

For little sister:

For little brother:little brother

The backs of the bags:

big sis back lil sis back  lil bro back

Coloring is so much fun, and I think these bags were the perfect gift for a perfect family of five.

I’ve made these coloring book bags for two other little girls and I was told they were used and loved. I’ve made quilts for newborns as well, but I suspect they have not been used as much as the coloring book bags.

Coloring outside the lines,
