100% handmade back to school

1. Multi-use bags

This is a really easy project to do for making those very useful multi-use bags, a drawstring bag for storing whatever you want inside. For example, you can use it as a snack bag for sandwiches, fruit, smoothies, juice… Furthermore, you can take care of the environment too, as this is a reusable cloth bag.

Use it as many times as you need it!

Sew them with fabrics selected from the large range of printed poplin fabrics available from Katia Fabrics.

2. School pencil case

We propose you sew a practical school pencil case using the printed poplin fabrics.  We bet it will become your tiny tot’s favourite for taking to school.

3. Free school overall PDF sewing pattern

In this video-tutorial we show you how to sew a school overall step by step. From the front button band, the shirt collar, the gathered cuffs, to the pockets and lower hem edge.  This is a detailed project, and furthermore, a very useful one which you can make by combining two poplin print fabrics of your choice together.
