Well, I didn't quite get all the back-to-school sewing done before the first day ... but I had a productive weekend.
Here's Little Miss Grade 3er's new lunch bag. Again, no pattern. I've had this design in my head for a while. It was nice to finally get it out. :)
We're both really happy with how it turned out. :)
She picked the same fabric as her pencil case, 'cept in pink
(brought to you by Queen of the Obvious ...)
I didn't know if 2 Fat Quarters were enough to make this lunch bag so I asked her to pick another fabric for the lining, just in case.
She went for this little cutie.
This fabric WAS in (another) forbidden pile ... there are several in my stash. Turns out I didn't need it for the bag, but I did need something for her placemat and thought what could POSSIBLY be a better use of this sweet print than for a little girl's placemat?
I designed the bag to fit her lunch containers: thermos, tupperware & space for granola bar, etc.
Now. The question is, how long is it going to stay white? Oh well, at least there are these pictures to remember it fondly. ;)
