Cheshire Cat Bag /Basket
This whimsical bag was inspired by one of my favorite cats. It can be used for egg hunts, a fun re-usable gift bag for birthdays or get well gifts. It can be hung on a peg as a soft hanging basket.
Of course, it can be filled with anything you need. It is sturdy with a double-stranded bottom yet soft and easy to tote around by toddlers and kids. The bottom is wider than the top.
Make the tail / handle as long as you want. With a longer handle, it will be great as a purse or even a backpack.
Make in any color you want for different looks.
