This little girl is getting pretty big. In fact, she’s starting pre-school next week. We are so lucky to have her nanny be her pre-school teacher. Talk about the best thing that has ever happened in the history of education. Rach is Alma’s favorite person (actually, she’s one of our whole family’s favorite people). I had been worried about Alma going to pre-school, but since Rach will be there, I have no worries.
Well, I have the normal worries of her making friends, of other kids being mean to her, of her learning bad habits, of her getting her feelings hurt, of her getting hurt. But I’m not worried about who will be there to help her through these things. Because Rach will be there.
Anyhow, I made her a backpack to take with her.
I used the pattern in the Oliver + S Little Things to Sew book. As always, I loved the Oliver + S pattern. I used some outdoor fabric from a local fabric store. It’s nice and strong and I think it will hold up well.
Alma took the backpack on our trip to California, and it was great to have her carry her own snacks and books on the plane. She really loves putting things in, and taking things out, of the backpack. I put an extra long ribbon on the zipper, so it’s easy for her to open and close.
I can’t wait to see what kind of treasures she’ll bring home from school!
She will do wonderfully at Preschool. I love that backpack too! You should sell them on Etsy … wink wink. 🙂
Haha! It took a long time to make, and was kind of frustrating and I’m not sure if people would pay for it. If you look too closely you’ll see lots of funny mistakes. 🙂 But thanks!
Love the backpack! She is going to love going to school. 🙂
She’s pretty excited!
