Lovin the Library

My library has a limit of 50 items that can be checked out at a time.  I know that seems like a lot of items, but when I check out a few books, magazines and videos and my daughter checks out a bunch of books and videos, well, let's just say that we are constantly up to our limit.  We are big lovers of our local library!  About a week ago I decided that it was time to get my daughter her own library card.  We went to the good library further from our house (that is not always wiped out of children's books and has a park to play in) to get the card.  She even got to check out her own items.  Next we went to the craft section of Walmart and bought a large blank canvas bag for her to decorate herself to hold her library books in.  She used puff paint to write the word "READ" on the bag and we attached her card to the handle.  It turned out very cute and she feels extra special when we walk into the library now!

I am a little jealous of my daughter's cute bag and want a special bag too.  
I loved this bag I spied on pinterest and am thinking about making it for myself!  What do you think?
Bag I want to make for me!
