Stephanie from The Crafty Kitty designed a Nature Explorer Bag for the GeoCentric Bag Challenge. She used an organic cotton/linen blend to line the bags and organic thread to sew them all together.

Stephanie writes,

    “The bag features: piping, an accessories loop (we use ours to hang a bucket off), adjustable straps, wooden toggle closure, a window pocket… for storing flowers, seeds and leaves [and] two pockets; one for your notebook/field guides and the other (which is sectioned) for your explorer’s tools! Whilst the size is perfect for pre-schoolers and young kids, it still fits all your treasures, like giant pinecones!”

The parade of pretty bags from our GeoCentric II Challenge continues! Each bag was made with organic GeoCentric II Canvas fabrics, a continuation of the popular GeoCentric range and a second run of the canvas collection.
