Young man's 4th BD

3/12 is the birthday of my youngest grandson.  At the encouragement of my new friend Mary, I made the young man a drawstring bag so he can take some entertainment with him when he goes to his older brother's ballgames and practices.

Here is the drawstring bag:

 
It's a tad difficult to see that the lining is the peapod color of the green cars in the focus fabric.
 
Here is the little guy with his new bag, already trying it to see how it just might work.
 
 
 
 
Thanks to Mary for her encouragement.  As with the wonderful gifted bag I received from Mary, I used twill tape for the drawstrings and it works wonderfully.
