Back to School Tutorials!

Well, it is that time of year again. The stores are hopping with parents trying to find best deals and students buy the supplies they need for school. I enjoy making something special for my kids return to school. Maybe a lunch box, backpack or pencil case. I found some simple tutorials and good information for making or buying that school backpack.


This Free Backpack Pattern was featured on Sew Mama Sew by Rachel Measham-Pywell from Four Wise Monkeys! It is super cute and with one trip to the fabric store your child can have a unique backpack that no one else has. Make sure to size your child’s backpack with this guide in mind!

I found a great guide for sizing your child’s Backpack at About.com. This is a great resource! Make sure you buy or sew a backpack that is the correct size for your child!

Last but not least, the Nap Mat/ Bed Roll by Prudent Babylooks super comfy and warm. If you have a little one that hates nap time this would be a terrific way to make nap time fun!
Happy Sewing!
