baby big boy started big school today. I’m now the mother of a Kindergartner.
So now he’s at big school, he’s probably not going to want Mummy’s daggy handmade sewing. So I snuck one last project in for him. A bag tag for his school bag!
I was stoked to find a small backpack for him (he is only 5 and a half – the backpacks are huge for the kidlets!). But it was black. And my J likes red. So I offered to make a red bag tag for him. Thought it might make it easier for him to find his bag too amidst the sea of school bags outside the classroom!
I roughly cut 1.25” squares out of my red scraps and sewed them together with some black to make his initial. You can see it’s a bit wonky, but it all adds to the charm right? Well that’s what I’m telling myself anyways. Truthfully, it was a last minute idea and late at night and to cut all those squares with my ginormous ruler (the small rulers are still packed!)… welll it all seemed a bit much. So this worked.
I’m happy he had a little something made by Mummy on his first day of school. It might be the only “first day” I can get away with this!
Proud to say no tears at school today – from him or me. He’s such a sweet boy – said to me this morning “I’m a bit worried you’re going to be bored without me today Mummy”. Bless his little heart. Like I don’t have a million sewing projects I’m dying to tackle.
Meanwhile I’m still wondering what happened to this little guy. Surely it was only yesterday.
