Another one

This title has a double meaning- another lunch bag, and another post today! Be warned, we could go for a third- I rather daftly had half an energy drink, thinking it would help me cope with the girls 'tude before bedtime; rather, I think I'll be up for a little while, may as well be productive while I can!

This is the third (well, 4th kind of) for the same child- yep, mine, I would probably tell any other kid to shove it!! The last one was too big again- no room in the school bag for anything else. The bonus of having such child is I am perfecting my pattern, practising and this one from start to finish was a day (a few breaks in between).

I originally got these fabrics for the lunch bag, but when I suggested them three bags ago- no way! So today I let her pick her own fabric (I hear this is how you get teenagers to do things, make it seem it's their idea. Pity I've had to use that on a 6 yr old!)






All ready to be tested out tomorrow! Good luck parents, I know already my routine is back- I'll go to bed too late, sleep in and rush out the door to get to assembly late.....etc etc
PS These will be in my shop soon, RRP $40. Pre-order in your own colours if you like....

Good back with school, year 1, so big & not the littlest anymore!! We go back Tuesday. I hope school wears them out as nothing i do with huge levels of activity seems to, boundless energy & then they feed off each other, swapping rooms, giggles, all over the house. With her lunch bag, you are nothing if not determined. Love Posie
