I made this bag for one of my nephews last year. Let me rephrase that, I finished making this bag last year, at which time I gave it to my nephew but, I started making the cross-stitch component of this bag around seven, yes 7 (!) years ago. I remember working on the cross-stitched little boy during a weekend trip from Toronto to Ottawa to visit dear, dear friends. It was intended as a pillow for my then 3 year old niece living in Calgary, now her 7 year old brother in Melbourne uses it as a library bag, and a car bag, and a ....for lots of things. At least I'm flexible!!! I finally remembered to take some photos of the bag during a recent visit to my sister and co's.
