Where I live, we have another month until school starts, but I heard that some places start next week! I can’t believe we are talking Back-to-School already! But, whether you are a little sad, or super relieved (LOL!), the school year must start soon. I’ve rounded up some quick, easy and cute back to school sewing and craft projects for you to sew- hopefully, they will make the first day of school a little more fun, AND they will give you a chance to dig into your stash and use up some fabric (so you can go buy more.)
