School's Out! School's Out!


Last Thursday was Lucas' last day of school. I wanted to do something special to show his teachers and therapists my appreciation. I found this tutorial and thought this was the perfect idea. The notebooks are small (about 5.5H x 4.5 W), but thick and would fit perfectly in a purse for grocery lists, quick notes or to keep a little one preoccupied. And as a bonus, she shows you how to make a matching pen!

I would recommend this little project to anyone who likes to sew. I made these in one day, sewing and cutting here and there. I can see making more of these in the future!

My favorite is the on the bottom right. Which one do you like best?

Love the notebooks and glad you enjoyed the tutorial. I think that my favorite is the same as yours, although I do love the red one too.

Also, I was inspired by your profile message about yourself. I copied some of it to remind myself what you said. I need to remember more to be grateful for my life; the good and the bad. Thanks for the reminder.

Love the red one...can I buy one from you? I like to think I like to sew, but never do! I seriously want to buy one. BTW - you asked me Sunday if my kids were arguing and I said, "No". Well, Carys is driving Broderick crazy this week...I guess I spoke to soon.

I like the red one. The teachers are so lucky to have you as a parent. Have a great summer!
