With just a few short weeks until most schools start back, we have rounded up 12 of our favorite Back to School Sewing Projects. Most of these are pretty quick and easy to whip up in an afternoon or two! Bring your little kid (or big kid) along with you to pick our their favorite fabric. Or even better, let them shop in your fabric stash!
