Summer is winding down, and school has either begun – or will begin – for students far and wide. One of the best parts of a new school year? New school supplies! 

Whether your child is in elementary school or you’re the student and are working on an advanced degree, there’s something so fun about stocking up on pens, pencils and all the other goodies that will help make the year a success.

Today we’re sharing a great Back to School project with you – Pencil Bags! Remember those fabulous Simple Zipper Bags from Sherri McConnell? The one we made an awesome video tutorial about? Well it’s time to tweak those bags a bit and create classroom-worthy Pencil Bags that will earn an A+! (This pug-tastic bag – above – was made with this fabric from the Joie de Vivre collection from Art Gallery Fabrics)

Personalized = FUN!

I made these super sweet Pencil Bags for my four children using fabrics I knew they’d love!  These bags are simple to stitch up, and Fat Quarter Shop has all the supplies you need!
 
Cheeeeeeeese! 
 
You’re sure to ace this Back to School project – especially since our video tutorial shows you how-to, every step of the way.  Here’s a link to the original blog post about these awesome zipper bags, which includes fabric requirements and supplies needed at the bottom of the post.  You’ll find zippers here!

 

GREAT GIFTS!

These darling zipper bags make great teacher gifts, too, so why not stitch up some extras while you’re at it? You’ll have a personalized gift ready for Christmas or Teacher Appreciation Day. Just tuck a Starbucks gift card or some candy inside, and the recipient will be delighted!

What’s better than to say “Happy Holidays” than with a handmade greeting card. We loved this Santa Express panel by Doodlebug Designs so much that we decided to fussy cut our favorite prints to make our fabric greeting card. To learn how to make your own, watch Me and My Sister’s video tutorial

My DIY Christmas: Merry Stockings!


Welcome back to the Jolly Jabber! It’s time for another DIY Christmas project for you! This time, we created Christmas stockings with the Merry Stockings pattern by Thimble Blossoms. 

This pattern is fat quarter friendly and includes four different designs and a template to create your stockings! 

We chose to create the Zig Zag version of the pattern and used the Mistletoe Lane collection by Bunny Hill Designs. 
Here are a few more Merry Stockings that we love!
