Something for the boy…

Just a quickie as I’m elbow deep in tutus and ballet shoes right now.

F has to sometimes take money into school, he’s recently decided he wants to buy his fruit at break, instead of getting the free fruit given to all Key Stage 1 kids (school say this is fine, I think he just likes the idea of handing over money and choosing) so I made him a quick small monster….’purse’?….

F chose the colours and specified 3 eyes and horns, so that’s what he got.

On the back I did a quick bit of machine embroidery, just to make sure it can’t get lost and there is a catch to attach it to F’s book bag.

Inside is lined with striped cotton and it’s a nice neat size, I was hoping it might fit in his trouser pocket but that’s unlikely.

Right, need to dash as the school run calls, hope he likes it!

  1. After your opening sentence I have this vision of you wading through ballet shoes and tutus. 🙂
    Must be nice for you to do something boyish.
    I think he’ll love it and I suspect if you made some more for your shop, quite a few people would love them too!
    It looks great Beth!

  2. It’s brilliant, everything from the cord fabric to the message on the back.
    I bet he’ll feel very proud of using his new monster purse.
    It reminds me a bit of zippy from Rainbow!
    Love it!

  3. Thank you so much for the red bird – I love it , love the packaging too. I’ve just ordered a couple more :-).. Seriously think you should do these monster purses as I’d buy a couple of them ?

  4. He’s gonna love it.

    What a great idea to add his name and also a clip to attach it to his bag – children can be very forgetful.
    I think you’re going to be inundated with orders from your son’s friend’s mothers, as well as everybody else who loves your creations :0) I know quite a few folks who’d like one, me included.

  5. My son (now 21) had to take his money to school in a boring brown envelope, he would have loved one of these Beth. In fact as he still loses money now perhaps I should be buying him one? ….LOL!
