Book Bags

I finished sewing my kiddos - book bags and I love them.  It took awhile to make 29 bags, but it was worth it.  The classroom library is staying neater.  I don't have to worry about them breaking, like plastic containers.  They are about 11x13 inches with two 16 inch finished handles.  They hold 5 books perfectly.  The kids store them on the bottom shelf of the gray crates, too easy.

The kids were really excited about them.  My room mom tried to sneak one home with her.  We have 6th grade reading buddies on Friday.  Half of the kids go to 6th grade and half stay with me - so they will just grab their bags and go.  Easy peasy.

Did everyone's weekend streak by or was it just mine????

  5. Hi Terri, I just discovered your blog through a shout out from Grade ONEderful. Super love these cool bags. I'm just getting ready to start student teaching in January and always on the lookout for projects I can be working on now, when I have no idea what grade I'll end up teaching. I'm also an aspiring seamstress, so this will be perfect for me. :) Thanks for sharing.
