With only one day to prepare for school I decided to look at the school supply list. Thankfully the school provides most of them. On my list, gym bag. I was planning on sewing one for my daughter (my son has one I purchased off Etsy a couple years ago - the store is no longer in business). However, while I was shopping the other day I saw one my daughter would love for a great price. The only thing left to do is put her name on it. Of course I could write her name on the inside with marker, this is how I do most of her items, but I thought this one needed something special.
I found a scrap of fabric that is a perfect match, and ironed interfacing to the back of it for stability then cut our her name. I used Microsoft Word to create the template for her name. After the letters were cut out I simply used a zigzag stitch to appliqué them on. I think it looks great. I hope she likes it!
