Wait A Minute Mr Postman...

Mail Satchel

So this is what my tragic attempts at freezer paper stenciling turned into, a postman's satchel. I struggle with crafting for boys, so when I saw Ryder pretending to be a posty on his bike I got an idea.

Mail Satchel : Inside

The satchel is made from interfaced canvas, fully lined with Michael Miller's 'Dick & Jane' fabric & to make the strap adjustable I added a belt buckle. But wait there's more...

Homemade Mail

Inside the bag is full of mail, all handmade of course & ready for delivery. I think I have finally discovered a handmade gift for boy's.
