signs of fall...



there are many signs of fall around here this week... and not just the rainy cool weather, or the few red leaves peeking out here and there. my youngest started preschool today! such a big day around here for all of us. she did wonderful and had a great day. i think it was harder on my son and i who were staying home! lot's of boo hooing going on:) i did manage to do a little work though, and listed the first of two pumpkins. i will have a limited run for fall, as i did last year. i have some new designs for 2009. the leaves are a little different and i have added embroidery. i will have some orange pumpkins to add soon as well.

i wanted to share another fun crafty project i worked on last night. i made some really cute snack pouches for my daughter to use in her lunch. the school she is going to is very environmentally friendly and discourage plastic, and plastic bags. we never used them for my son either... we had little metals tins, and wax bags instead. though better for the environment, the wax bags are disposable, so i thought i'd try something different. i found this pattern online and tried it out. i made two bags last night and found it to be very easy (i am not much of a machine sewer)! they washed really well today too when i tested them out. they went into her lunch basket this morning with a few tins, and a cloth napkin on top to cover it and use while eating. adorable, and good for the environment.

your little girl is so adorable! the basket is just like one that mamaroots made recently and i LOVE the idea...too bad we don't go to school around here...it would be a sweet "lunch" basket.

hey jenn, i looked at mamaroots blog and saw the post you mentioned! i hadn't seen it before, so it's funny how similar:) i do love her work though.

it is pretty cute... i always wanted to be Heidi as a child, so maybe i'm transferring that to my daughter a little bit!

Hello,

Just love that you tried the snack bags! I found they have held up well with all the washing ours receive. Going on our second year of using the same ones.

They also find their way into my purse and car to hold small items.I take the one from the car with me that holds s small sticker collection for my granddaughter to play with and stick on items in our grocery cart, keeps her busy while we shop together.

That basket is too cute!
