A perfectly practical library book bag with whimsical black giraffes on a creamy white background. Great for summer reading programs or story time trips to the library with toddlers, preschoolers and big kids.

The tote is big enough for most children’s books, and includes a black and white polka dot sewn in zipper pouch or zipper pocket to hold a library card, markers, a cell phone or hand held video game, and fine money –or treat money if there are no fines!

This book was inspired by my years as a parent and grandparent, taking kids on outings to the library. I found that if the books stay in the bag when not in use, and the library card stays in the zipper pouch, there are fewer frantic searches and fewer overdue books!

This large tote bag fabric is a home dec weight 100% cotton screen print from Premier Prints. The zipper pouch is 100% cotton. The zipper is a polyester YKK zipper from ZipIt: http://www.etsy.com/shop/zipit. The handles are white woven cotton webbing.

The bag measures 13.5 inches (34.3 cm) tall by 12.25 (31 cm) wide. The inner zipper pouch is 8.5 inches (21.6 cm) wide and 5 inches (12.7 cm) deep. The handles measure 9 inches (22.86 cm) from the “peak” to the top of the bag, so it can be carried as a shoulder bag.

Although I designed this bag as a library tote bag, it could also be used for trips to the pool, the zoo, the beach, or as a not-too-cumbersome take along bag for reading, knitting, needlework, or shopping.

The top seams are serged with two rows of topstitching to secure the handles and inner zip pouch. Side seams are finished with French seams – no exposed edges. And the bottom is finished with a French seam reinforced with an extra row of stitching for durability.

The bag is machine washable, cold, gentle cycle. Tumble dry low or air dry. Touch up with an iron as needed.

If you would like a bag tailored to your child’s interests, I would be happy to do a custom order. Convo me.
