Back to School

I sent my daughter off to school this morning with these itemsShe picked out the fabric back in July when I suggested that I make her a backpack this year. I had two reasons for this suggestion.
  1. Last year she had a breakdown in the store when she couldn't decide which backpack she liked best.
  2. I had seen a cute homemade backpack on somebodies blog somewhere out in bloggerland and I have been dieing to try making one.
I think that it turned out pretty good, considering I didn't have a pattern.
I love reading other people creative blogs, they give me so ideas. The lunch bag and boxy pencil case are a couple of other ideas from bloggerland, I don't know where I saw them but they were tutorials that I had read once, and again something that I wanted to try with my own twists of course. The two little bags are for her crayons because the boxes they come in don't stand a chance in a desk of a second grader. The tall one is for her pencil crayons and the little one for wax crayons.
I have one more backpack to make for my preschooler, but she doesn't start school for another week, so I have plenty of time to get it done....right?


  1. She's cute!! And I love the back pack and all the goodies to go with it. I think it's fun to have something unique from everyone else!
    Have a great day.

  2. Wow, I bet she was the coolest girl in school with all of that amazing school stuff. My daughter would be jealous.
    I am entering again for your great giveaway and I do LOVE your lunch sets but have to say my favorite item is the Red polka dot doodle purse!!
