Six days and counting until Rascal starts school!
She cannot wait!
As for me, well I'm caught in a haze of preparations... The birthday, the party, the school visits, life is anything but boring at the moment!
Regardless of all this busyness, I couldn't help but start a new wee project. On Rascal's school stationery list was a "large waterproof, velcro closing book bag".
I saw the ones that they had available online and in the shops and yawned! Surely I could make something a bit more fun!
Rascal has been eyeing up my Little Kukla laminated cotton for a long time, so I started with that. Unfortunately I didn't have enough so I bought some more of the awesome red polkadot laminated cotton that I have used in the past (yay! Its back in stock at The Make Cafe!)
I made up the pattern as I went along and with the exception of a few wee dodgy spots on the machine sewn binding (which I will notice but nobody else will), I'm really really pleased with the finished result.
Infact, if anyone wants a wee tutorial I'm sure that I could come up with one! Just let me know if you're interested...
