Personalized lunch bag for Abner

Abner's new teacher asked me to put her name on anything we send with her to school when she starts in a couple of weeks. Of course, I had to turn it into a crafty challenge and try my hand at a little free-style cross stitching. What do you think? So much cuter than marker, eh?!?!

The bag is not new. It's a Threadless design called, "Mr. Cloud's New Scarf" we picked it up from some discount shop in Regina. I had no idea Threadless made anything other than clothing and bags, but when I was searching their site for the link to the lunch bag, I discovered they even make wallpaper, dishes and about a million other awesome things. Must buy more Threadless!

If ever there was a child that was ready to start school, it's Abner. She's already gone for some transition visits and tells me she'd rather be going to school than hanging out with me all day (to which I feign complete offense!). She's recently started reading books to us instead of the other way around and she's mastered the art of tying her own shoes, so now that her name is on all of her stuff, she's all set. Only 21 more days to wait - but who's counting.


  1. Threadless is awesome, but it's the embroidery that makes the bag, for sure. Happy schooldays, Abby!

  2. Totally cute! She'll be stylin' in the classroom! It must've been a little tricky stitching through the pocket. Nice work!

    1. Thanks, Holly! It wasn't too bad to work with that pocket. I even managed to keep my needle from going through the inner lining without too much trouble.
