Since Jeanne has twin grandsons who are going to be in first grade this Fall, we have been thinking about all the special things that we can make for them to inspire learning. We both love reading so the idea for a tote bag that would be the perfect gift for that first trip to the library was a natural. Jeanne asked her "little guys" what designs they liked best and we'll share them with you as we get them done. This butterfly is one of my personal favorites.
And don't you just love the little holder for that library card? Every kid I know loves little things like this that are perfect for a pocket or, in this case, can attach to the tote because it has velcro on the back or a button to hold it in place.
We are playing with National Nonwoven's great new bamboo felt-it feels great and we think will hold up well to the weight of a book or two. Stay tuned for more designs!
