Monday Made It

 Monday Made It
Where is the summer going?  This is my first link up Monday Made It.  Whaaaat? 

Lots of things going on vacation, garage sale, cottage prep, de-cluttering (you know how a house gets those secret piles during the school year).

Now I can settle into executing some ideas for school

I only have one made it for today.  Im making new book bags for my classroom.  Late in the school year I sent a note with my students asking for old, holey pairs of jeans.  Many families came through for me and Im able to make these cuties for my classroom.

I love the fact that I'm using items that would usually get tossed.  Also, there is lots of space to hold items that would send my students rummaging through their desks to locate.  With the pockets my kiddos will be able to keep their sharpened pencils in their back pocket!

Here are the steps for completing the project...

I'll leave you with one photo from vacation because our family did make memories. Our vacation was a trip to visit our daughter and son-in-law in Wyoming.  While there we took a quick trip to Yellowstone.  Lots to see and enjoy!  By the way we didn't think we'd see snow (especially after the rough winter we had here in Wisconsin) but we did.

Have a great week!


  1. Oh my goodness, I LOVE these! You just sewed the bottom up, then used the hem to tie on the seat, right?!

    I'm pinning this! :) I can't sew to save my life, but sounds like a great job for my momma!

  5. I pinned this not too long ago. I don't sew, so I'd have to con someone into sewing them for me. Lol! Love your vacation picture. I've always wanted to go to Yellowstone.
