Hello hello. It's been a while! Among other things I have been busy sewing up my last two bags of the year ( I think). One of my lovely friends here in Japan asked about a doctor's bag for her daughter. Lovely daughter also thought baby brother might like one too. Mom thought it was probably so she wouldn't have to share!
I was really excited about this project. I think you know that both of my kids love dress-ups and imaginary play. Noodle has kind of grown out of costumes but Little Guy LOVES them. He has a doctor's kit somewhere and we have all had very painful injections at his hand. (It's a blunt 'needle' so he has to jab at us quite hard to get the desired effect).
About these doctor's bags:
The larger bag is the 'mini' size and has an adjustable strap. I made it pretty with a natural linen base and fun red polka dots inside. The little bag is my 'toddler' size but has a slightly wider base and a very short strap since the doctor's assistant is not yet two. I'm happy with the appliqué red crosses. I haven't really had much experience with appliqué so I used the little bag for practice. It is a little wonky. It's harder than it looks! What do you think? Would you like a visit from these two doctors?
