What to make a 5 year old off to school? It seems kids are leaving Lala's Kindergarten bound for big school at a rate of 2 or 3 per week right now.
As is my way I wanted to make something pretty and useful. Something to be treasured and in this case to celebrate the transition to big school.
Not unusually I found myself short on resources - mostly time!
So the ideal solution - a book bag and matching pencil case. I whipped this up in an hour and a half on Sunday before taking off for a party fest and endless turns on the wiggly slide.
I may have to make a pattern as no doubt there will be a few more parties to attend, and friends to bid adieu before it's my girls turn to make her move at the end of the year.
Linking in with Leonie (this is always such an inspiration - thanks Leonie!)
