tutorial tuesday


Yep!  It’s about that time!  Time for the little ones…and the big ones…to head back to school and back to routine.  For me this means a little routine quiet!  Have you ever tried making a back pack?  My son has been using the same ikea one since 3 year old preschool (he’ll be going to first grade) and it’s barely showing signs of wear, except for a difficult zipper.  I wonder how handmade backpacks hold up?  These sure are adorable and worth a try!

This week’s coordinated fabric bundle from Sew Simple Fabric includes some oldies but goodies.  The combination of the yellows and browns of Amy Butler’s timeless Midwest Modern combine well with the tones of Heather Bailey’s Freshcut collection.  Freshcut brings a brightness with pinks and greens to brighten up the color palette.




Here’s what’s included in this week’s bundle:

Garden Maze in Mustard
Stripe in Peachy Pink
Mums in Brown
Groovy in Brown
Fountains in Brown

Mix It Up Monday aims to help you coordinate fabrics from multiple collections to take the guess work out of your fabric selections.  I hope this week’s bundle inspires your next project!
