It's been a while...

I have struggled to find things to blog about recently. I have been busy crafting but it is for a secret swap I am involved with so I can't post pictures or it will give the game away!

I did quickly whip up these notebook and pencil holders today though, they are for a couple of children at the school my son goes to, their mum has generously given me a bag of uniform that her youngest has grown out for when my youngest starts pre-school.

I based them on this tutorial. I am not entirely happy with them though and if I was to make them again I would do things differently. They are made out of an old pair of jeans, some ikea fabric and some dinosaur quilt fabric. I used fabric covered buttons and elastic as closures but I think I would try something else next time.




I used the back pockets from the jeans so they can have somewhere to store stickers and things.
