making school supplies

30 07 2012

Sometimes you just can’t find what you’re looking for while school supply shopping, other times you want to try a fun pin using duct tape. So we made a few supplies outside of the cart full of crap stuff we purchased.  First I made some pencil pouches for T1 & T2.  They wanted them big enough to hold A LOT of pencils but small enough to fit in the backpack with lots of books.

sorry for the blurry pic.T2 gave me free reign on the fabric so I used some Lucy’s Crab Shack scraps.  I still need to show you guys all the stuff I’ve made with Lucy!

Using the Pinterest inspiration, T3 and I made some duct tape pencil bags.  They were quick and fun!

Using this same idea, I made an Art folio for T4. He was supposed to have an art box and fit all this stuff in that little box.Needless to say, it didn’t fit.  So I had some extra zip lock bags left over and decided to use some fabric, duct tape and bags to make an art folio.He approved and I was happy because he now has an opinion about clothes and school supplies and frequently rejects mom’s ideas.

Last but not least is a cover for my school issued iPad.  It’s not the best iPad holder but it came with the iPad.  I just made it a little better.  I also used the inspiration for the pin floating around on Pinterest to make a stylus pouch.  It works for now but I may need to invest in a better cover eventually.Yep, you should recognize some more Lucy scraps.  I love Lucy :)
