Check out my Halloween BAT bag!
Oh I know. It's because I had a major brain fart, wrote down Bat Bag in my list of things to do, pulled out fabrics, read through the directions and planned on a bat bag (a gift), and then ... proceeded to cut out and sew the penguin bag. I would have done the penguin bag anyways, so I'll finish it and then do the bat bag, LOL. To my credit, the instructions and photographs for that particular shape of bag, are all for the penguin bag. The bat and other designs are added afterwards in a small section, with a small picture. Even though my brain and eyes were saying bat, my fingers and sewing machine said penguin :D And it's obvious who won :D
Blame NOT the book! It's a wonderful book! It's chock full of cute goodies, and in fact, the bat bag is on the front cover (a very small photo, mind you). I plan on making more fast, fun & easy critter bags - hopefully next time I'll remember to engage my brain first, LOL!
