A bag for the scooter...

The boys were so excited to get their scooters for Christmas, looking forward to riding them to school and about. After the first day of doing so, we realized the issue, no way to lock up said scooter at school. So, that meant either I had to ride/carry it home, leave it unlocked at the bike rack (no chance!) or stuff it into his backpack (it's too tall and sticks out). A bag was needed that he could hang by the classroom on his backpack hook. I dug through my fabric stash and found some good canvas left over from projects, all I needed was the strapping.

Here is the first one made, it's turned out great and I now have ideas to improve it slightly.
Here it is with the scooter inside. BSU colors for my little Bronco Fan.

Sharpee and pony beads = name tag. I'm going to find some clear vinyl I can sew onto the inside to slip a name tag into with basic info.
So there's my project for the week.
