I searched Etsy.com for gym bags for my girls. They need bags to put their gym shoes and clothes in. They are required to change for gym to teach them to dress themselves. However, my girls have been dressing themselves since three! Matching is a whole other matter…
Last year, my five year old used an old red backpack that is starting to fall apart. I had nothing to replace it with and my four year old needed a gym bag as well.
Sure they could carry their school bags that they use for class but NO ONE does that. :)
I want my kids to fit in and I want something beautiful and all their own.
Elissa Hill’s Etsy shop has the cutest drawstring bags perfect for gym class or other occasions. She has bags of all sizes, clothes for children and aprons in her Etsy shop. Everything in her shop is beautiful and well made.
The most important detail for the girls was that their names would be sewn into their bags!
The sweetly wrapped package arrived today. The girls tore into it right away!
This is the back of my five year old daughter’s gym bag.
This is the back of my four year old daughter’s gym bag.
A fairy graces the front of my five year old daughter’s bag. Her name which I have covered is sewn with felt above the princess pocket. My four year old daughter’s bag has a flower sewn on the front with each letter of her name embroidered into one petal of the flower.
We bought my five year old gym shoes at the beginning of the school year this past year. Her feet grew and busted those plain old black gym shoes out. She didn’t want the black shoes but all the girly shoes were sold out in her size.
I found these pink girly gym shoes (shown above) as a replacement at the very end of this past school year. She only wore them once but I think the shoes will still fit for next year. Now, we need to buy a pair for her sister. I hope we can find pink or there may be a cat fight!
I was not paid or given anything for free to write this post. I simply bought the drawstring bags for my girls and love them!
