Another project for little bit

I'm just popping in to share my latest project.... another little something for my little bit to take to school.   We're just a few days away from the big first day!  We went shopping today for a few last things (bag, lunchbox, and thermos). But, I just couldn't bring myself to buy a backpack from the store.... just couldn't do it.  So, off to Hancocks we went.  Taylor said she really wanted a messenger bag, so that's just what she got.  She picked out this super cute corduroy all by herself and decided that it must have her name stitched on it somewhere.  The name patch is fused on and then I just kinda went willy-nilly with the border stitching.  Kinda fun, I think.  I even went for an adjustable strap.  I'm not sure why I've always shied away from doing those; it was way easy.  There's nothing fancy inside, no pockets, and the flap closes with a magnetic snap.  
Oh, and we did buy a lunch box (pink camo) ... I thought about making it, though :)

Very cute! And regarding the lunchbox, I think having one is a right of passage for a child. Homemade ones sure are cute (I keep looking at them on Etsy) but I still adore the plastic ones with thermoses inside of them.

So true idyll. And, many a friendships are formed by bonding over favorite lunchbox heroes.

This so rocks! And your wee one thinks it's NORMAL for mom to make her a messenger bag. Like that's something moms do. (My kids were so lucky when they didn't have to use big brother or big sister's cast-off Wal-Mart back pack from last year.)

Cute! I recently overcame my avoidance of adjustable straps; they're a cinch after all, eh?
