We have just about a month here until the kiddos are back in school. We’ve even had a couple of cool evenings.  EEK! I’m not ready for summer to be over yet, it feels like it just began! I have been working on lots of small projects. I’ve found some great patterns on Ravelry to make for some of my favorite kids so they can go back to school in style with a little something made just for them. Here are just a few of the things I’m working on….these are just some fun, quick projects that you can easily get done before the first day!

I just love this Minions Tablet/iPad cover by Stana D. Sortor, photo courtesy of Stana D. Sortor.  Free Ravelry Download. Some yarn choices for this one could be Encore Worsted, Jeannee Worsted, or Galway Worsted just to name a few.
