Backpacks, New Outfits, Freshly Sharpened Pencils…Back to School has begun!

I think we probably all approach back to school with some mixed feelings. On one hand the kids could really use getting back to the structure and learning of school, but on the other hand it never feels like we did all of the things on our summer bucket list.


Need some ideas for Back to School Sewing?! Take a look at these beautiful projects from around the craftosphere.


Laptop Cover




Spoonflower In this tutorial, a Spoonflower designer walks you through sewing a quilted laptop cover. Functional, stylish, perfect for your college student! The plan calls for 1 yard outer fabric, 1 yard inner fabric, batting and either handmade or purchased binding. Easy enough to customize for an ipad or other electronics you want to keep safe and protected!



Lunchbox



Kirsten Dunn posted this pattern for the cutest lunchbox. This would make a great handmade gift for anyone! Pick a ⅓ yard fabric for the lining and another ⅓ for the interior, a coordinating zipper, and some insulated lining and you’re ready to sew! I can’t wait to give this one a try!



Pencil Roll


Take a look at this project by Confessions of a Homeschooler. This pencil roll will hold your colored pencils safely and securely. I love that it uses elastic instead of just pockets to hold each pencil. Raid your stash for a quick, colorful sew!




Quilted Tote Bag



Looking for a modern take on a tote bag. Check out this one by SuzyQuilts. This is the perfect way to give sewing curves a try. It's easier than you might think, especially with the tips from SuzyQuilts.




Fabric Alphabet Letters


SugarBeeCrafts uses a 5 inch charm pack, 1 yard of backing fabric and some batting to create the sweetest alphabet. What preschooler wouldn’t love practicing letters with this colorful stack.





Which will you sew first?
