A Monthly Goal for August

I have to admit, I'm that parent. The one who is overjoyed for the start of the school year. This week is the last full week of summer vacation and I'm really looking forward to getting back into the routine that school provides. Summer is hard for my kiddo (and me!). All of his neighborhood friends spend their days at summer camp or daycare because their parents work full-time so it's just him and me all day long unless I set up organized play dates or outings. And did I mention that our house is up for sale? Throw in some house showings and an open house to add to the chaos and there's not been much sewing going on.

That's why I want to ease into August with a simple sewing goal of making more reusable sandwich bags for school lunches. I made a few last year, including one that was Star Wars themed but it was a small snack size. I'd like to make these larger. I'm not sure how my son will feel about the apple and plaid fabrics, but I'm sure he'll approve of the Peanuts fabric I found in my scrap bin.

  1. I like these little snack bag ideas, we'd like to use less plastic. Good luck with your goal.

  4. I hope your home sells quickly and easily! Making the sandwich bags sounds like a great goal for the month. I'm hoping that the crazy of summer starts to ebb soon, too.

  5. Good luck with your house sale, hope it runs smoothly. The summer can be long for kids when there are no friends available locally . Not long now !

  6. I was always the one who never wanted to be away from her children, which is one reason I home-schooled them, but I do get it, and we're all different which is a GOOD thing! I get the part about liking routine though! Your sandwich bags are so cute!

  7. It sounds perfectly reasonable to me. One friend was bereft when her kids (triplets, no less) left home in their mid-twenties. I could not understand. My mum was thrilled when I moved out at 17!
    I love the plaid! I would take my lunch to work in that. :)
