Here’s Today’s Post:
Now that I’m no longer in school, I really love this time of year. That dread of returning to homework, tests and papers has been replaced with a deep sense of nostalgia. This year, instead of fantasizing about new supplies and freshly-pressed outfits, I think I’ll craft away my back to school blues. Thankfully, AllFreeSewing‘s latest eBook, 6 Free Sewing Projects to Make for Going Back to School, is filled with back to school projects that you can wear or use immediately.
I like that this eBook is filled with ideas for everyone. Whether you’re crafting for a kid or an adult, you’ll find crafty ideas in this eBook. Also, the projects cater to a variety of skill sets, so you can try something more difficult or go back to basics.
My personal favorite project in this eBook is the Lunch Sack. Last year I decided to “go green” and carry a reusable tote to work each day instead of using (and then throwing away) a plastic bag. This project is a great option if you want to keep your food the correct temperature and save the environment from unnecessary waste. It’s honestly so easy to make this project – beginners can show off their work with pride!
Here are some more back to school projects to get you in the fall spirit:
