I Made a Pencil Case

I sew a lot for my little shop,
but don't often get to make goodies for my boys.
When the firstborn's school pencil case burst at the seams
I decided to make a new one for him.
The back...
Has an extra pocket.
And the front.
He loves it, he's grade 5 this year,
so I always a worry about if he would still like things made by his mum.
No need to worry at this stage, he "gets" handmade,
and so far, is not fussed about the whole brand thing.
I'm very glad that he has the confidence to not have to
have/wear and be like everyone else.
He picked out his fabrics and watched it take shape,
then off to school it went.
Happy Boy
Happy Mum

Snack Container Lids

Like most mum's, I pack a lot of school lunches.
I send rubbish free lunch boxes,
I peel and core the fruit as our compost benefits from all those scraps,
rather than binning them at school   
 And, I wash a lot of school lunch containers.
The boys are very good at not leaving their containers at school,
but, somehow, the lids of the smash snack tubes do go missing.
I was going to buy some more, then wondered if I could just get the lid's,
rather than buying more containers.
I found them online at Bonzoo.
The lids were 50c each and even with postage, it was cheaper than buying new containers
The only thing was that the lids arrived in this huge box!
How can that be, it's just bloody ridiculous.
Anyway, I have my extra lids now, all ready for next term.
This is not a sponsored post,
just sharing the info in case you may have some missing lids too :)
Have a great weekend
