John Deere Bag


My son needed a donation for an FFA auction. I knew that anything with John Deere on it would sell. Jeans are popular with FFA kids too, so I decided to make a jean bag.




I had several fabrics left over from other FFA auction projects. I used three different pink fabrics as you can see from the inside.







I wanted to add "bling" so I remembered this concho and beads. They were sparkly. Also notice the cute pockets. These are a size 6 donated by my very small, cute neice.





If you have followed me long, you know any project isn't finished until it has a label.






The finished bag. It sold for $45. A very nice donation, but it also means I donated most of my time since it takes about 12 hours for me to make one of these bags. I really don't mind, but giving one of these away is like giving away one of my children. She found a good home though.
