This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Although I still have another small something prepared for the end of school, I wanted to show my daughter's kindergarten teacher how much we appreciate all she does. I've volunteered a few times and let me tell you that a room full of 5 year olds - even at their best behaved (lol) - is a ridiculous amount of work! I'm exhausted after an hour, so I don't know how she does it day in and day out.
I've never tried a Noodlehead pattern before but have heard nothing but rave reviews. Before I dive into the Super Tote, I purchased the much praised Divided Basket pattern in the hopes of making a fabric basket that I could stuff with lots of extra school supplies and goodies. I pulled all my fabrics and cut out pattern pieces on Monday with the goal of finishing by Thursday at the latest. Within 24 hours, I had a finished basket!
This pattern is awesome! I had a blast using some novelty cursive fabric as well as a dash of dictionary print for the divider in the middle. I even managed to sneak in a label :)
I had so much fun making this that I'll definitely be making more. And just about everything that I bought (except for the sidewalk chalk) fit inside no problem!
On a little side note, I finally caved in to peer pressure and hopped onto Instagram. I'm instantly hooked - I still love checking everyone's blogs, but it's fun to see projects in progress and bits of everyone's personal lives and kids. If you're on there, come and find me @simplesewendipity!
