Kindergarten, woot! Woot!

We had our first day of kindergarten this week.  And really, what good is it having a mum that sews if you don’t have anything handmade for that first day?  I knew I wanted to make her a backpack, but I was warned by the teachers that the backpack couldn’t be small and cute.  I never argued with the size requirement but the whole not cute part?  I took that as a challenge!

My lame attempt at some artsy photography. . .pattern by Sara of Sew Sweetness – link to pattern Promise Ring Backpack.

I believe I owe Aurifil Thread a thank you for making strong thread. . .

. . .this would have hurt if the thread were to have given way!  It was the final stitch and I quickly finished off the binding by hand.

Not a tear was shed. . .that was noticed 🙂 thanks for dropping by and if anyone figures out how to freeze time – please let me know.

    Beautiful as always hunni, your colours are always fab and you are so productive you put me to shame…. 😉😘 we’ve had both kids start new schools this week and as hubby is away again, I’ve felt stretched like elastic between the two of them…trying to not be too clingy, yet with the right amount of mummy soothing…it’s quite nice to have the extra stitching time…but I do hope that mummy worry fades a little in the coming weeks ☺️Xxxxx
