Generally speaking my girls tend to be flexible about material posessions, but there is one exception: writing instruments. No school issued #2 pencils for them. They have always brought their own special ones to be used for school. The old robbery ("but what if someone takes it?") and losing ("but what if you lose it?) arguments didn't deter them. Anyways, mommy finally got around to making some pencil cases for them.
My oldest loves red...and this vinyl (I was surprised how easy it was to sew with) seemed to match well with this schoolish print I had hoarded for years. The other is a hot pink with winking Hello Kitties.
Speaking of Hello Kitty, the last of the fabric was used for a custom snap wallet. Is it me only, or do others feel hesitant using a last bit of fabric? Technically I still have enough for a key fob.
