Another School Year

Here we are again at the beginning of a new school year.  Summer seems to always fly by.  Our summer was filled with lots of travel, family and as always, time for sewing. With that said, we have some fun projects to help your kiddos have a successful school year!

We have two lunch boxes that are sure to make anyone happy. My girls have made both and let me tell you they wash up beautifully! Their food stays cold for them until lunch time and lets just address how adorable they are :)
This first lunch box is a pretty easy project.  Good for any level 1.5 student. They will learn how easy it is to make box corners, how to make a casing and learn to do some machine quilting.

This second lunch box is AMAZING! How cute is that?! This lunch box is full of techniques. Level 2 students will learn how to bind, quilt and sew with Annie's Soft & Stable Foam. (Our latest favorite product!)

We adore this project.  Perfect for keeping your pens and pencils in order in your desk or locker. Zippers always seem to be an intimidating part of any project.  We have a really slick way of installing zippers that will change the way you think about zippers. You will be amazed!

Last but not least, this notebook cover has been a favorite of the sewing girls for years now. This notebook cover fits over a composition notebook.  This makes great teacher gifts or friend gifts.  

I know you don't want to be thinking about this, but Christmas is just around the corner. I have started my Christmas sewing as of today. So, have your girls start thinking about who they can sew a gift for.

Happy Sewing!
