The birthday girl really likes pink, so my original plan was to have a pink zipper and drawstring, but Joann's didn't have any appropriate pink cord. The PUL lining is very, very pink, though! Hopefully that pinked it up enough for her liking.

Swim Bag, Take Three
I think I'm going to keep gifting these until every kid I know has one. It's a practical gift, but still kinda fun. This bag was for a five-year-old who likes pink. I made hers the same as my niece's, although I must have marked the drawstring openings wrong, because they were off a bit. Still functional, fortunately, since I didn't realize it until it would have required serious tear-inducing seam ripping.
I love this print. After making a play sling and a dress from it, I'm down to just a few scraps. It's so girly and spring-like. And I'm so very done with winter. It appears that winter is not done with me, however.
In completely unrelated, but nonetheless awesome news, check out the envelope art on this pattern I won from What Nancy Drew Wore. Pretty much the coolest ever. I think I'm going to frame it to hang in my sewing room.
