I have already fallen in love the Ghastlie line from Alexander Henry Fabrics when I first saw in the Ghastly Gathering and planned to make something for Halloween.

 

This is just Ghastly!!! Don’t the witches look awesome?

While I am preparing the healthy variety of food for the kid, I hope to make it enjoyable too. All these wonderful items I ordered from cute lunches boxes, food picks, sauce containers and food cutters to make the school year a lunch packing interesting and fun!

Go Label Crazy

“Label all the things!” I was reminded again and again. Some classrooms use individual supplies for each student, you will need to label those, from backpack, lunch box, towel, hat and even shoes. If you send it to school and you want it to come back, put the kid’s name on it.

 

Luckily I have bought some cute iron-on appliques (at 60% off discount!!) from Modes4u that would be useful for name tagging and decoration.

In order to encourage my boy to drink more water at school, I have to make a tote for him to carry around the water bottle with one of his favorite dinosaur fabrics. Hope it works.

Toddler Kindergarten Backpack

It’s August already, time to prepare for school, my little boy is going to kindergarten. I am a little bit sad a little bit excited, he is growing up so fast.


I decided to try my hand at making a school backpack, it made me happy that I sent him off to school for the first time with something I put so much love and effort into, almost like a part of me went adventure with him.


After a quick search on Pinterest, I found some brilliant and detailed tutorials:

Summer is coming, hats need making…. There is free sewing pattern available from Oliver + S (sizes from 6 months to 8 years).


I choose a medium-weight cotton canvas for one side and a plain contrasting cotton fabric on the reverse to coordinate with different summer outfits.
