Sewrella's Back To School Series!

back to school series

Earlier this summer, Sewrella graced us with a kitchen-themed series with six of the most simultaneously useful and beautiful crocheted pieces you could ever want to have in your kitchen. (Stay tuned next week for a kit where you can buy that whole series!)

Now, the one and only Sewrella is back with a series of must-make Back to School accessories made entirely with 24/7 Cotton. Sure, the season is almost here, but that's no reason not to get in on the fun! Your kids are going to love this. We've gone ahead and made a kit where you can get everything you need to make this perfect set of supplies for a student dear to you!

Or hey... make it for yourself. We're all students of life right? Enough philosophy, let's take a look at these seven outrageously awesome pieces! 

1. Finger Tassel Monogram Bookmark

Does your precious student have "little hands that often lose their belongings?" Well Sewrella thought about that and has just the thing for you. Plus, monograms are trending, and this crocheted book mark is just incredibly awesome. (Editor's Note: I also have little hands that often lose their belongings)

2. Notebook Paper Textbook Cover

I was a weird kid, and I particularly *loved* lined notebook paper, especially for drawing on. So when Sewrella unveiled the notebook paper textbook cover, I immediately fell for it!

Take Sewrella's advice and start the pattern with the actual textbook handy - if her pattern looks to be the same size as your textbook, you're in luck! Go for it, and the cover should stretch around your book perfectly. However, if you've got a book of a wildly different size, don't fret! The pattern is easily modified to fit a book of any size.

3. Meet Happle, the Amigurumi Apple !

I mean, what is there to say about this? You guys know how much I squeeeeee for adorable amigurumi!! So, yes, I am totally smitten with this happy apple, who I have named Happle.

If your student gives this to their teacher and it doesn't melt their teacher's heart immediately, you will know right then and there that their teacher is a stone hearted monster, and one to keep your eye on! But don't worry that won't happen because this little apple could melt the tin man's heart and he doesn't even have one!

4. Pencil-Shaped Pencil Case

Psssssst.... it also holds crochet hooks.

5. The Little Kid Backpack

Make this Little Kid (toddler-6 or 7 years old) sized backpack for the little guy or gal learner in your life! Sewrella made this for her nephew Grayson!

A simple, versatile, and stunning design, this Little Kid backpack can be made more girly by changing the colors. Sewrella suggests that it would be "super cute if you added appliques - add to it and make each backpack super unique!"

We have a feeling just these backpacks alone are going to be worth the price of admission!

6. The BIG KID Backpack

Sewrella guarantees that this bag "will work as hard as your big kid!" Can I just tell you, *I* want that bag. This is a real winner here. We've included both the Big Kid and Little Kid pattern and materials in the kit.

Sewrella says this bag is inspired by her "spunky niece who is always full of excitement and energy," which just goes to show, these are great accessories to make for your extended family, nieces and nephews, or even your old college roommate's kids!

7. The Cutest Lil' Lunch Bag on the Planet

According to Sewrella, "this little lunch bag is the perfect size for a sandwich, an apple, and a couple of cookies - yum! The size would also work perfectly for a snack bag to take to soccer practice or ballet lessons!"

Sewrella recommends "hand washing and laying flat to dry just to preserve vivid color and shape, but in a pinch you can toss this lunch bag in the machine!"


Remember, you can get everything you need to make all of these amazing pieces right here.

As a last note, I want to give Sewrella an especial thanks for just making 24/7 Cotton sing the way she does. I have begun calling her "The Queen of 24/7 Cotton" in my cheeky eMails to her - but really, this yarn is very special and Sewrella (and many of the other bloggers we admire) are proving that its got the most vivid, eye-catching colors and alluring stitch definition of any cotton yarn out there. This is a yarn that inspires you to break the mold and reach for new ideas, and I greatly appreciate Sewrella getting so ambitious with these series! Stay tuned for more kits from Sewrella appearing soon at lionbrand.com!
