The Field Bag
The night before we left for the woods, I was panning through Amanda Soule's The Rhythm of Family: Discovering a Sense of Wonder through the Seasons. I like to read this book monthly as each month coincides. When I saw the field bag, I knew I had to make it for Patrick - right now! Nevermind that there was packing to be done, the boy needed this FOR camping! So I headed upstairs with a plan. Patrick would have his bag!
I started with a decorator weight cotton for the bag, and lined it with some fun frog fabric. Why not? It's outdoorsy! It was such an easy sew and so worth the effort. Patrick brought his collection of fun things with him to the campsite including his bug vacuum, his compass, a flashlight, and his whistle. I knew he'd appreciate the concept of it. What little boy who loves camping wouldn't?
