My daughter is obsessed with headbands. It probably has to do with the fact that I bought her a bunch of headbands a year ago and she broke all of them and I told her she wasn’t old enough to wear them because she couldn’t take care of them. Well that just made headbands the forbidden fruit. So a few months back I bought her another one and told her she can’t stretch them out or wear them on her belly (yes, true story!) and now she won’t take them off. I will put her hair in two braids and five minutes later she has popped a headband over it.
So I know this week we have showed you how to do some pretty in depth sewing tutorials with the child’s backpack, mega card holder wallet and the hanging toiletry bag. I will say we saved the easiest sewing project for last. This little “busy bag” is the perfect way to keep your kids occupied on long car rides, in restaurants, or waiting in the doctor’s office.
School is over and summer is well underway. But I bet if you are anything like our family you have kept special papers, report cards, and art projects all in some type of bin, box or folder. One of the things I have noticed about my kids is that the more I showcase their projects the more they try. I love decorating with my kids’ art work and I find that they feel such a sense of pride when their artwork “makes it” on our walls.
