Lunch Bag Pattern NEWS

With school right around the corner, I've had a lot of readers writing to ask where my lunch bag tutorial has gone.  I haven't had a chance to respond to every email, so I'm making the announcement here, hoping it reaches everyone who emailed.
I took the tutorial down a few weeks ago with the intention of writing up a more extensive pattern.  I'm getting really close to being done and I'm hoping to release the pattern for sale next week. Here's a little sneak peek.

I feel a little bag taking down my free tutorial, however, I try to keep ads to minimum on my site and I'll be selling this pattern at a fairly low cost.  It will include a full size pattern and instructions for 2 different size bags as well as a pocket for an ice pack.

Check back soon for more information.

I WONDER How I Lived Without....

wonder clips!  I've seen these neat little clips on other blogs and have been wondering what all the fuss is about. 
 So, I grabbed a small pack with a 50% off coupon at Joann's one day.  These puppies are pretty expensive.  But, oh my goodness, they are amazing!  I'm in backpack making mode and these work like a dream.
 Using pins to put together these backpacks is tough and my hands usually end up with many little scrapes and punctures.  Never again!  I'm waiting for another coupon so I can pick up a few more.
 Summer is in full swing, but school still feels like it's right around the corner.  I've got 2 new toddler backpacks in my etsy shop and more to come. 
Have you discovered Wonder Clips yet?
