You might recall me mentioning a while back that I was sewing up a storm making book bags for Maia’s class pay-it-forward project. I’ve just finished sewing handles on the bags, and I thought you might like to see some of the end results:
There were a real mix of designs…But the overall effect is amazing. So bright and colourful:I really love children’s art at this age because it is largely uninfluenced by their (mis) perception that they cant draw, or paint and the end results are so unaffected.
Here’s our girl with her bag (she is very proud of it):And, keeping with the pay it forward theme here is my bag… which I plan to give to the class teacher, because teacher’s do such a wonderful job – and often don’t get recognized for their extra efforts. Ill be back tomorrow with a little ‘how to’ including the links to the flowers used on the bag. Love Janette xoxox
