Today I got a wee bit crafty for our neighbour’s fourth birthday party. I have a pretty strict no plastic garbage birthday present policy- if it can be homemade, more the better! So I remembered this great handlebar bag- good for bikes and scooters- that a friend of ours had made for her kids and nieces and nephews (she made 8 for the kids, and maybe more for the adults- she is a total superstar). I thought they were so cute and handy- and have been meaning to make them for the whole family ever since I saw them last summer, or was it the summer before.. eeps! Anyways the time had come, so I chose this fabric from my surtex booth panels and found the excellent instructions online here at sew mama sew and got stitching! I am so excited it worked out so well– I changed the pattern a bit so there’s a flap instead of just a velcro opening, and I added a magnet closure for the flap. I really hope our neighbour still loves the colour purple- but if he doesn’t I happen to know this would look pretty great on his mama’s bike too.
