For my primary lesson today (I teach the 5 year olds), it said to bring some sort of "small gift" for each child as part of an object lesson. The manual suggested a flower or pretty stone, but I have been in a sewing craze lately and wanted to try out some drawstring bags. Then I thought how fun would it be to make personalized notebooks for each of them? Now I am no sewing expert and these bags are nothing fancy or special, but I had fun making them and was so proud of the finished product!
I made the striped ones for the boys.
I have a ton of this beautiful fabric so I made the girls bags out of this.The notebooks I made for my nieces could get expensive to make for my whole class so I found these little notebooks for $1.50 for 3 and just used some scrap paper and buttons I had to cover them and personalize them. I loved the way they turned out :)
