Back to School Goodies!

If you're like me school is right around the corner for your kids. I was looking back through the tutorials I have saved in my favorites to see if there was anything I could make to help give me a head start on the return to school. I found several things I thought I'd share just in case anyone was interested!

My oldest starts kindergarten this year. I saw the pencil case tutorial on Noodlehead and plan to make one with her before she starts school. We bought an outrageously expensive Japanese import linen Little Red Riding Hood fabric to make it. Unfortunately her school supply list calls for a plastic pencil box. I am pretty sure she is going to just use the one we make. Hope that's okay with the teacher!
