The holidays continue as do the preparations for the upcoming school year. The weather has turned and signs of spring are everywhere which makes these tasks very pleasurable. Last night I put the finishing touches on the bags I've been making for Biggie's friend.
You might recall that I took Biggie and Sara shopping a couple of weeks ago. She chose this gorgeous oxford cotton printed with turtles. Her mum was aghast that I'd let her choose white ... but it's just so fantastic. She also chose the rainbow cords and strapping.
I am especially pleased with the shoe bag. It's for carrying their indoor shoes home each Friday to be washed. The giant sized lesson bag is also great. Once every so often the kids are asked to bring a big bag to school to carry home art projects and stuff. The bags always seem too small so I've super-sized it.
The whole set includes a bag for the cutlery and cup as well as a lunch place mat, the shoe bag and a drawstring bag for their P.E gear. The large lesson bag is an optional extra. All the kids have them from kindergarten and use those but Sara was hoping for a new one.
