With two different classrooms and two different themes my first thought was to make tote bags…then I had a bunch of other random thoughts about what I could make but in the end went with the first idea: bags.
The theme: Year of the Dragon. While the bag isn’t really “year of” it is one of my favorite dragon related embroideries:
The bag is a variation of this bag, just made with one large straight pocket on one side and a smaller pocket on the other. The top can be folded over or folded inside if a smaller bag is desired. It can be worn cross body or over the shoulder.
Denim dragon bag filled with a dragon T-shirt, 2 Chinese art prints, $50 gift card to Din Tai Fung in Bellevue, a red dragon puppet, red Chinese New Year envelopes filled with $12 in cash, chopsticks (x4) and holders (x2), How to Train Your Dragon DVD, My Father's Dragon book, The Great Race: Chinese Zodiac story, Puff the Magic Dragon book and CD, Dragons and Monsters pop-up, Magic Treehouse dragon book, Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke, and Fire Within by Chris D'Lacey. Happy New Year!
I hope the winner of this auction loves everything they've won, especially their new bag!
