It’s almost time for the kids to go back to school! I always loved the beginning of the school year- shopping for school supplies, new shoes, and a new lunch bag! Even if you don’t have little kiddos going back to school (mine are grown, too!), I think you will find some really cute projects here that you will enjoy for your own use, or to give as gifts! And guess what- all of these projects are free :)
Shark pencil pouch– what boy (or maybe girl!) wouldn’t love to go back to school with this??
Kids’ Messenger Bag– adorable!
Drawstring Backpack– great for using up those novelty fabrics.
Notebook Tee– this is so cute! Kids can have their friends sign the shirt on the first or last day of school!
Pencil Bow Tutorial– super cute hair accessory.
Fabric Covered Notebooks– use your fat quarters to dress up composition books from the dollar store!
Desk Caddy made from wooden rulers.
Journal Jar– I think this is a great way to teach kids about gratitude. I’ve heard of the beginning of the school year referred to as the “first New Year’s”- because it represents a new beginning, just like January 1. This can also be used as a fun “journaling” project to record events throughout the year.
Apple Pie Cupcakes (because everyone deserves a special snack after that first day of school!)
Here’s to a great “new” year!
