Making A Bag For My Son Jack's Football Boots !
As the the football season begins again, Jack will train on the oval at his school, therefore he will need to take his football boots with him to school in his school bag. As I don't want to use plastic bags and the football boots can get really sandy and gunky on the bottom, Yesterday I decided to make him a bag to carry them in, better for the planet and I have made it big enough that it should last him years. They are very easy to make, the finished size is width 30 cm and length 36cm and a draw string either end so you just pull each end to close the bag. They are made from 100% cotton fabric and will be easy to launder when needed. You can also just turn them inside out and give them a shake to remove any sand and grass etc... I have also sewn an embroidered label that I sewed on "Jacks Football Boots". You can see two bags with both the same name as I made one for Jack's friend also called Jack, So Jodie if you are reading this blog post I made one for your Jack to put his football boots into. They would be great for storing so many things, Jack played cricket last year if he plays again I will make him another one for his cricket shoes. It makes them so easy to store, keeps them together and can be hung on the back of a door handle for easy access. I love fabric bags they have so many uses... What else does every one store in their fabric bags !
