3rd Grade Book Bag with Lizzie!

August 23, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

It is time to return to school, and we thought of Lizzie and her special San Francisco book bag! Nancy emailed us with photos of her and her granddaughter Lizzie’s Britex Fabrics summer vacation visit. Lizzie is 7 years old, learning to sew, reads the Britex blog faithfully, and was delighted to visit Britex in person. Nancy says, “We came home with a lovely stash of fabrics, and the first thing we made was her book bag (McCalls 6176) from your "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" fabric. She'll put that to use when she starts 3rd grade in Denton, TX. Thanks to all of you, especially the 4th floor ladies who gave her a nice sampling of shiny fabrics. We look forward to visiting you again.” Lizzie, email us photos of your sewing and craft projects using Britex materials...we’d love to feature them on the blog!
