Here in Australia we’re nearing the end of Winter and school is in the middle of a Term. But I’m aware that many of my Lovely Readers are getting ready to finish up their Summer break and get ready for going back to school.
So I thought I’d collect a few of the school sewing projects that I did earlier in the year and last year for my kids to get ready. You’ll find that many link to tutorials or posts with more information to help you get it all done quick and enjoy those last few days of holidays.
