Mammoth Bag (Jennifer’s Craft-It-Forward Prize!)


This year I participated in a Craft-It-Forward chain on Facebook. Basically, you copy and paste the details, and whomever replies receives a craft from you, made in 2010 and sent by the end of 2010. In turn, they must also copy and paste the status and send a craft to whomever replies! On and on… 🙂

I had 2 repliers, Jennifer and Kristen! I just completed Jennifer’s craft not 1 hour ago. I decided to have my girls create a wish-list so I could tailor their prizes to them. A few of Jennifer’s favorites were green, purple, and elephants, and she also mentioned she’d like a large tote bag to haul around her son’s stuff.

Well, wish granted! Meet… the Mammoth Bag!


Named not only for the elephant appliqué, but for the fact that it’s unreasonably large 🙂 I made this pattern once before and I forgot how huge it actually is.

Dexter really liked the button eye.


Someone did not like being put inside the bag. I can assure you, however, that this bag will, in fact, hold a whole toddler.

  1. LOL I was just think you could carry Dex around in that bag, then you commented on how he didn’t like to be in it:) too funny! the bag is super cute though!

  2. i was going to lift him a couple inches of the ground, just to see if it could handle that and because i thought he would think it was funny, but the second that bag started coming up near his head he started saying “uuugh, no no no no!!” lol… i don’t blame him, i’d freak out if someone tried to put me in a bag lol.
