Snow day, part 2 was all about the sewing. It. Was. Wonderful.

These are all the starts of new lunchboxes. I had started out just planning on working on one–the top picture–which is going to be for a friend’s sister. I love the fabric (It’s a Hoot by Moda) and was excited to get started on it. I got into a real rhythm, and by the end of the night, I had all of this work done. Nothing’s finished, of course, but everything seems to be ready for the next step now.

Back to see the kids for one more day this week. As strange as it might seem, these last two days of being home made me pine for the summer. Having all day to sew makes me so very happy.

  1. Love,love, LOVE It’s a Hoot and Origins!! Girl after my own heart–ah:) LOL!

  2. I’m so jealous of the progress you made on your snow day! I had one yesterday, but I didn’t make nearly as much use of it as you did.

  3. I badly need to make some lunch bags – my toddler is starting nursery in a couple of weeks and I want his lunch box to stand out among all the other for when he has to pick it up at lunch time!
