This week we’re sharing DIY ideas for “Back to School” to help you get the kids ready for the new school year ahead. So let’s get started…
1. We’re in love with this cute drink bottle holder. It has a nifty little handle which makes it easy to carry around, so it looks pretty and it’s practical – win win! This was made with our Alley Rabbit laminated fabric.
2. If you can’t decide on just one pretty fabric, here’s another great idea for your drink bottles. Made with our adorable Voyage quarter fabric set with hot air balloons and stars.
3. New school year = new books to decorate! You can make your own fabric covered books with our adhesive fabric stickers. This adds a lovely tactile touch to your books and they will be even lovelier to look at!
4. Bookmarks are an easy project that kids can create with you. Use fabric tape or washi tape for quick clean craft time – no messy glues! This was made with our Puzzle washi tape which features sweet hand drawn letters.
5. Fancy a bit of sewing? Why not give this Colour My World pencil case a go? We just love the bunny rabbit lining inside! (or you could choose the polar bear design which is just as fun!)
6. Make lunch time exciting with an awesome lunch sack! We love this cutie created by Blossom and Cat with our Wildflower laminated fabric and Seed bias tape for tickle the imagination magazine. You’ll find the step-by-step project in Issue 21.
8. Whip up a handy drawstring bag for swimming gear, library books, sports shoes, change of clothes, or maybe make a mini version for pocket money or hair ties. This one was made with our Starry laminated fabric.
9. You can create a central focal point for reminders and important notices with some custom pinboards. These ones feature our Cloud fabric sticker set to make them a little playful.
10. For something a bit different we created this fun countdown frame when my niece started school last year. It’s a creative way to bring on the new school year and it’s reusable so you can countdown to birthdays, concerts, holidays, sleepovers, everything! The free printable and instructions are on our blog over here.
So hopefully we have given you a few ideas to play with!
