Custom Order - Starting School Pack
Custom orders are a great way of challenging me. They can force me to be imaginative with fabric or design. This custom order was a great way of reflecting personality and a privilege to be able to support a massive life changing moment for a little girl. Starting school!
We needed to make a backpack, lunchbabg and rest time cushion. Although it was needed for the first day, it was decided that the cushion did not need to match the bags.
The backpack has a large compartment with two outer zip pockets as well as an internal divider. There are also two side pockets for water bottles (or important playground discoveries).
The lunchbag has a carry handle and a zip which opens 3 sides of the bag giving lots of access. It is lined with white water resistant, BPA free polyurethane laminate.
We later added a cutlery bag which is also lined PUL. Little Miss selected the fabric which is why it does not match the lunchbag. PUL is machine washable, water resistant and BPA free. So mum can wipe it clean or wash it depending on the situation.
And there she goes, "You're off to great places, Your mountain is waiting so ... get on your way!" - Dr Seuss.
This backpack was made using a pattern purchased from Andrie Designs and the lunchbag from a pattern by SewSweetness. The hardware is from Betty Box Pleat. The zips are from the Zip Coop Australia. The cushion was made using a bespoke Handmade for Me pattern. I have no affiliation with these stores and do not earn commission from you selecting the links.
