Back to School: Etsy Finds & More Fab Patterns

Hello there! I can not believe today is the very last day of August! WHERE has the time went? School starts here in Northern New York in just a few short days and I know my three children are just bouncing around with excitement. I made an Etsy treasury this morning of some wonderful handmade backpacks. You should take a moment to see all the wonderful creations!! ~~ Peek HERE ~~

Onto some more FREE and fab patterns! Don’t forget to check out the previous Back to School posts I did which include:

I would also just like to plug-in, that I do not in form get compensated for mentioning particular shops, artists, ect. I love to create pattern lists because it makes it so much easier to locate exactly what you’re looking for. I just feel that’s important for my readers to know. 🙂

Today I am sharing a list of free patterns intended to be back to school gifts. We all love practical and useful, but a special handmade gift just adds to the excitement! Onto the good stuff!

Back to School: Pencil/Pen Case Free Crochet Patterns

Hello friends! What projects have you been working on? I have been seeking out something fun to make for each of my children for a new year of school. I think I am more excited about the start of school than they are. Because there are SO MANY ideas for back to school projects, I thought I’d separate the posts by project. In particular my oldest requested a custom HALO pencil case (haven’t quite figured this out YET), but among my search I did find some really GREAT patterns to share. Feel free to comment and add your favorites.
