Next week, I have three kids heading to school. I've spent the past few weeks trying to hunt down school supplies for them. I'm finding that teachers are getting quite particular about what brand (Ticeronda pencils, Flair pens, Crayola colored pencils) items kids bring in, and the lists are now including things like dry erase markers and chlorox wipes. Who knew I had to stock up on the teacher and the janitors supplies!
One thing in all my years of school that I never used was a composition notebook. I don't know how I made it through without one! Each of my older kids have at least 4 on their school lists. I sort of got in the habit of buying them when I saw them on sale and ended up with quite a stack.I went through my scrap bin and thought I would make covers for a few of them.
This one was some fabric that I used when I made an apron. And the tie around? Well, that's from some linen curtains from Ikea.
This one I made with a ruffle and a button to hold it closed. I think it turned out really cute using coordinating material that I had on hand.
Now I can have my very own composition notebook. But what do I write in it?!
