Lou's first day of school was last Friday and I couldn't send him empty handed. This fabric was fun to work with because it was the fabric that covered my bulletin boards my first few years teaching.
I burned 4 CDs of my favorite mixed preschool songs (I made the play-list for myself anyway) and made up a little case for them. There's a lot of Dr. Jean, Hap Palmer, Jim Gill and Greg and Steve. For the case, I sort of used my car CD holder tutorial and added a flap. I added an initial to each, but poor Ms. A... the one I made her with an A was too small to hold CDs! I had to quickly make a new one. I of course was sewing these the night before school.
Lou got his little first day of school treat too.
I told him that he had to be dressed first, but he could. not. wait.
There were shoe charms and a green lantern snap bracelet inside. Pretty much exciting should you be a 4 year old boy.
Daddy got to go the first day. I came over when I had a few minutes. Teaching next door has it's benefits, but I miss most of the special days and party days.
This week he was on his own at preschool. He was pretty hesitant but had a great time like always.
