Down Under Quilts Kids Issue

Well this is a bit exciting!   Over the last six months or so I’ve been working on a number of behind the scenes projects and this week I finally get to share one of them with you.   Right in the back of the Down Under Quilts Annual Kids Issue there’s a little project made by yours truly.

Down Under Quilts #175

This little Bookworm library bag was a last minute contribution to the Kids Issue and is a very simple project to make.     The library bag projects I’d seen around previously mostly had drawstring handles on them.  They were adorable but my kids always found those drawstrings a little tricky so I designed this library bag to have a soft handle and a hook and loop fastener which, I think, makes it much easier for small people to carry and open.

She’s a happy looking bookworm isn’t she!

If you’re out and about it’s worth picking up a copy of this magazine there are so many great quilts and projects in it including the stunning star quilt by Jeanette Bruce of Gone Aussie Quilting which is shown on the cover and, a super fun Ring a Rosy quilt by one of my fellow Farmer’s Wife 1930’s Sampler Sewalong bloggers Alyce Blyth of Blossom Heart Quilts just to name a few.

  1. Congratulations Peta, such a cute and practical design. I think this gorgeous bookbag would turn any little person into a happy bookworm!!

  2. Perfect for my little grandboys on their long car ride this Summer! I’ll use bugs and pirate fabrics.

  3. This is so adorable!!! I have 3 grand-daughters that would LOVE this book bag. Is this magazine available as a download? I live in the US, searched the web to purchase the magazine, no results. Could you please advise me how to get the pattern/tutorial?
    Thank you,

  4. Hi there,

    Gorgeous pattern! I’ve purchased a copy of the magazine. I’m wanting to make it as a Christmas gift and just wondering what the requirements are, so I can get them organised while I wait for my magazine to come in the mail.
