Back during the summer holidays I did manage to get a little sewing done. It feels a long time ago as it was right back at the start of the break.
But as we only just this summer got around to joining Little Miss to the local library, it was well timed as we've able to use it lots already.
It's on the reading theme, this first item, you see. Namely, books and the transporting of. My Little Madam is allowed to take out ten books at a time on a library trip. Which seems an awful lot to me, but to give the girl her due, she's certainly been keeping pace with their way of thinking and has been racing through the volumes.
So a handy, dandy way of moving all these pages from A to B seemed to be called for and this is my answer. The 'I Love Reading' book bag.
I put her name on the back too, which she adores. So much so, that the back has become the 'official' front, according to her.
I also whipped up a little sleeve for her recorder to live in. The plastic one it came with didn't last for very long, and at least this way she'll know which one is hers from the other side of the classroom.
I do have lots more to share and so many ideas buzzing round my head dying to burst out that I feel like my brain might explode any day now. Unfortunately at the moment I'm still struggling against the tide of 'things to do' frantically trying to get caught up enough to have time for anything else. Hopefully now that a full week of school is finally here and regular routine is starting to return, the tide will start to turn and flow my way.
Until then, I'll just say that a new pattern is working it's way towards these pages... stay tuned!
