I am delighted to be a part of the Sew Americana blog tour today. If you are new to my blog, welcome! Daydream Believers, The Blog is where my love for life, fashion, and DIY come together. Inspired by the littlest dreamers, I strive to create a joyful childhood for my kids and hope to inspire you to do the same. I started blogging six years ago when I founded my company, Daydream Believers Designs. I believe that creating for those you love is good for your soul; I blog to share how I do it, so you can do it too!
Our small town USA 4th of July kicks off with a festive parade and ends with fireworks; we keep it classic around here. My kids look forward to dressing up in their Red, White & Blues and cheering joyfully for the floats and marching bands. This year, in addition to their patriotic wear, I made my girls a sweet patriotic tote to collect all the candy that the kiddos pick up curbside at the parade.
This generously sized tote can easily carry their water bottles, sunnies, and the massive load of treats.
In the past I have neglected to bring a tote for the goodies and found myself with cup holders, pockets, and a stroller basket full of melty candy (boo!) But not this year, my friends! I used THIS easy tutorial and whipped up this bag during naptime. Gotta love a scrap busting project that is cute and practical too!
