Since our church started an AWANA program this fall, I've wanted to make a bag for Autumn to keep her Awana book and Bible in.  She likes having different bags for each activity, so she needed one for Wednesday nights.

There is NOTHING fancy about this bag, but the main point is, I made it and Autumn loves it.  I made one for her, and one for her cousin Mark.  Simple, yellow bags embellished with dog bones (because that's the award they win in T&T for saying verses) and the first initial of their name, along with coordinating handles.

Last week my mother in law explained to me verbally how to complete an embroidery stitch and I was determined to give it a shot.  Even though it looks like a drunk did it, trust me, it looks a LOT better than just stitching a straight stitch around the letters.  And hey, it was my first try, so I really should cut myself some slack!

Great! Now that you've practiced, you'll have plenty of time to make Josie's before next year.;)
