Summer Reading Program

awhiles ago, i won two FQs of some Little Golden Books fabric from Jona of the beautiful Stop Staring and Start Sewing blog (she also owns the online store, Fabritopia which has a nicely edited collection of fabrics). it was actually an impetus to start a blog--i had been a lurker on blogland for a couple of years--but winning the fabric seemed like truly a blogworthy event! thanks Jona :-)

this is a super-easy tote bag to make (pattern found here)--perfect for grocery shopping or library visiting. here we are outside our local library after signing up for the Summer Reading Club.

...and the other side of the bag.

i was a Children's Librarian in my previous life and spent countless hours organizing, promoting, and just doing the Summer Reading Program at my various libraries. so when i had kids, that was one of the first things i wanted to do with them! check out your library to see if they have a Summer Reading Program--they usually have prizes--free books for kids--woo-hoo!


  1. My children are a bit old for summer reading programs at the library but I have to confess I still enjoy childrens books.

  2. You are the perfect person to win this fabric. Congrats.

  3. I love the library and so do my kids. Our local library has a kids, teen and adult program so we are all participating! That is a perfect bag! Thanks for sharing it!
