Some readers asked in the comments how I did the silhouettes - I didn't want to reply in the comments (and enter my own giveaway- daft!) so I waited till now to answer.
First, I did NOT make the silhouettes myself.
The silhouettes are printed fabric panels by Michael Miller, which I bought at fabric.com last Christmas. It's a soft quilting cotton, perfect for quilts and utterly useless for bags (at least the way I like them), so I reinforced the panel with craft fuse and duckcloth before sewing them as a patch pocket onto the bags.
I did consider making silhouettes of the girls - both their traditional profile views and full-body action poses - but I decided not to do that for the giveaway. Better to give away a generic child's silhouette than my own! But I would have done it with freezer paper stenciling (if I were to make just one) or silkscreen printing (if I were mass-producing for every grandparent in the family). There are plenty of tutorials for either method - just google the phrases to find some! What would we do without the internet?
Finally, the other two boy-silhouette bags are in the shop.
We're only halfway through February, so there is plenty more happening at Rae's and Dana's Celebrate the Boy funstravaganza!
