I spent some time thinking about this and finally came to the conclusion that now isn't the right time for me to try to tackle this project. Plus, I need to improve my sewing skills first. However, I couldn't resist day-dreaming about what I would do and drawing up a plan.
We're on a Robin Hood kick in our house these days (Disney's animated version for my daughter and the BBC series for my husband and me). So, my thoughts went to a castle. Let me know what you think.
This was my thought for the outside... flap for the door, mail pouch, removable vegetables and a basket pouch (even castles need gardens), two window openings, etc. I'm still thinking of something fun for the back.
If I can get skilled enough, I'd love to do something with the inside as well... a fireplace that is actually an exit flap, pouches with fleur-de-lis on them, a shield design with our family initial, and maybe some banners.
I'll be saving these designs for whenever is a better time for this project. And I'll absolutely be following the party to see all the creative ideas people come up with. I hope you do the same.
Let me know if you think of ways to enhance the castle.
