A small sort of accomplishment (citing Pride & Prejudice) … new bookbag completed!


DD’s last bookbag was tattered after 5 years of service, so I made her a new one. Totally handsewed, no machine used. Took me half a day yesterday, and half a day today of straight sewing, but it’s done!  Her mascot is the strawberry and all her things are coordinated in strawberry, hence the strawberry fabric. Made of quilted fabric and lined on the inside for durability and strength…i.e. built to last!

This bookbag is one of the many items of school paraphernalia that school children have to have to go to elementary school (and kindergarten). Thankfully, the list gets shorter in middle and high school.
