tiny deer & Nerf darts

Last Christmas, I  bravely gifted my three sons with Nerf dart guns ;)    Son #3 bought himself extra ammo with a gift card a relative had given him, but he never opened up the package of extra darts.  Two days ago he told me he wasn't going to open it up until he had something to put his darts into so they wouldn't get lost.  Naturally, I offered to sew him something :)

I showed him several fabrics from my stash to choose from.  He said he wanted something that went with darts.

He chose three different colors of the Tiny Deer print from Momo's Oh Deer! fabric line, and he was very specific about what color went where :)

I used a red ribbon that has been hanging around for ages.

I used the free lined drawstring bag tutorial over at In Color Order. 
Son #2 has already picked out fabric for his own little bag, and Son #1 would like one, too.
I just love a good excuse to sew for my boys :)

Cute bag! I'm lying in bed with my son who was poorly in the night and he said 'cool , he wants one!' even though I still haven't made the zipped pouch for his iPod that I promised him around Christmas time... :-)
