The left one has a double pocket worked into the front - one for pencils and lists and one for extra bags. Yay!
Just three more sets to make and two are already cut out. They're for Oregonians though so I'm not on quite the same time deadline.

So, Monday and Tuesday's snow days were expected (sort of) and I was resigned after Wednesday's late start and school on Thursday that we were going to be in school today. The temperature was just too high to get any snow to stick. Yay unpredictability! What a way to start winter break! No school until January 7.
Not only is it all winter wonderland out there but every so often it starts snowing great big, fluffy, Hollywoodesque flakes again. Delightful.

Only 9 more sets to go and four of those are all designed and cut out. The sewing machine decided that it no longer wants to sew through as many layers as it used to so I had to change the strap attachment after one top took me an hour! Thank you again serger for making my life a little easier. Thankfully, the rest went considerably more quickly.
The rectangle on the one with the stripe is a pocket! I like that a lot.
The flower applique was of my own design and by far the most complex that I have attempted. I'm not pleased with the result (the curves came out a little sloppy) but I am still learning and the bag will still hold stuff.
