September 2015 - Free Sewing Project - Homework Organizer

Posted by Gail Nelson

Summer is over and we are back to those hectic mornings. Lunches, homework, permission slips, and getting to the bus/ car/ school on time is always a challenge. This homework organizer hopefully will ease the start of the day by having everything ready to grab as you head out the door. Let’s get the kids involved as well! Having them cut the letters out and placing them on their pocket gets them excited. If anyone is old enough to sew, have them sew with you.
