Little Sewing School: Lesson seven

This months Little Sewing School was inspired by my children's passion of doing arts and crafts everywhere and my passion of not having a million colored pencils at the bottom of all of our bags. I did something similar with my knitting needles a few years back but instead of the ribbon tie I used for that project, I added elastic here so I wouldn't be asked a million times to tie up their roll. You're welcome ;)  They LOVED these and going out for dinner and on airplanes is going to be a much more enjoyable and organized event now. Yippee!...

  When my firstborn was about to be born, my grandmother and I sat down at my kitchen table and made two buntings to decorate her little room. I had gone to the fabric store and had too much fun picking all the fun prints I wanted because I only needed little strips of each. Soon after Lottie came and little did I know she wouldn't sleep in that room once, she would stayed cuddled up with me until we moved back to Australia (and long after!). Those buntings however have been to everyone of my kids birthday parties, their cousins too....
