Introducing the Tricycle Handlebar Bag!

Now that the warmer weather is here, we have been out and about a lot.   There's something about the smell of lilacs that makes me happy (and makes me sneeze!).

Today I'd like to introduce you to something that I have been working on for the last 2 months.  It's finally here... the Tricycle Handlebar Bag!

Backstory:   Joshie's tricycle gets used daily for our walks.   However, when he wants to bring his toys along with him, he usually has to stuff it between one of the bars and hope for the best.  When he tries to collect sticks and stones along the way, I have to carry them!  So then it hit me... a handlebar bag for his tricycle!    I wanted a bag that would be easily accessible for little hands and easy to put on/take off so I decided to make him one.

Here it is:   a denim handlebar bag with the words "stuff" appliqued to the front.

It snaps on quickly

I lined with a fun animal print cotton.  Toss in your stuff - rocks, sticks, balls

I left it open (no closure) because we keep his tricycle in our shed.  I also interfaced the denim to give some more structure to the bag.

Joshie was very happy with his new tricycle bag.  His exact words were "nice"!  Why didn't I think of this sooner?

He loves his bag but baby brother loves it even more!
