It’s August already, time to prepare for school, my little boy is going to kindergarten. I am a little bit sad a little bit excited, he is growing up so fast.


I decided to try my hand at making a school backpack, it made me happy that I sent him off to school for the first time with something I put so much love and effort into, almost like a part of me went adventure with him.


After a quick search on Pinterest, I found some brilliant and detailed tutorials:

The Re-do: Big Boy Room

Car Fabric by Clothworks

Car Fabric by Clothworks

My little boy is soon to a kindergartner and we would like to make a big re-do to “upgrade” his room.

 

He was so excited but the little brain was busy choosing the room’s theme out of his favorite robots, cars or dinosaurs that he could not make the decision on “cars” until 2 weeks later. (By the way, the answer really surprised us, we both bet he would choose “robots”.)

 

Some inspiring car-themed big boy room ideas found on pinterest which we finally agree on a blue green color palette, a magnetic “road”, display racks, headboard with cars and of course cars fabric for the bed and curtain.

 

Therefore I will be busy ordering fabric for the boy’s room and shopping for the supplies.
