One of R's favorite pastimes at the moment is to put things inside of other things and then take them out again. This, paired with a surprising accumulation of small, random toys & playthings, inspired me to make a set of small fabric bags for r to carry around, put things in and then empty out again.
For the fabric, I used some old liberty scraps I had with a solid cotton lining. I used a heavy starch on both layers to stiffen up the fabrics a bit and give the bags a bit of shape. The two layers are just tucked one inside the other and then sewn together at the top with a single straight stitch. I trimmed the top with pinking shears and I love how this simple finish mimics the top edge of the classic paper lunch bag. I'm not sure R will appreciate the detail.
