It was less than 5 bucks!
Then I began thinking about how I could decorate and personalize Mr. Three's little bag...
I picked up this iron on adhesive (also at Wally World) and I already had some "little boy" fabric.
I decided I would 'monogram' his bag.
Just a note of caution - make sure all of your adhesive is covered by fabric before ironing. I made the mistake of cutting out my letter first, then adding the adhesive...and ended up with a sticky mess on my ironing board cover. Lesson learned!
After ironing on my letter D, it was still pretty plain, so I cut out a firetruck from the same fabric.
and of course, I couldn't stop there, I was on a roll, so I made little strap covers too!
Overall, I thought it turned out pretty cute for my first attempt.
Now my oldest daughter has picked out fabric so I can "dress up" her book bag too! (Peace signs of course!) And Mr. Three....well, he said he liked it, but refused to wear it on his shoulders for more than 2 milliseconds.
This was his first day of school.
Don't you love that cheesy fake smile?!
My baby boy is growing up :*(
