Summer Project - Design your own fabric II - Make stuff with it

My post titles are getting more original by the day... ;-)

I had a couple of hours of free time this weekend, while hubby and the kids went to the zoo. I decided to start "making stuff" with the fabrics the kids had made last week.

I turned some of Yanic's into reusable snack bags for school and a pencil case. The snack bags are lined with ripstop nylon.

And while I was at it, I made some for the girls too. All in varying sizes. The biggest is the size of a regular ziplog sandwich bag.

This is Yanic's new pencil case. I used the front of last year's and replaced the back and bottom with his fabric.

And here is one of the skirts. The second one is not quite done. So, because of that, no model shots either, yet.
I have to say, I LOVE IT? I think, it's so cute.

I did not use a pattern. But, I have seen so many skirts with boxed pleats lately, that I wanted the girls to have one too. I think, this will be perfect for the first day of school.

Pretty ribbon finish on the bottom:

 Cute piping and fun buttons in front:

And the back:
