My daughter L.O.V.E.S Monster High. As an alternative to Barbie…..I can get behind this. Everything she could find for school this year in the Monster High theme, she went with: backpack, lunch box, notebooks, headphones, and anything where the colors reminded her of characters. But a week ago, her beloved Monster High lunch box went missing. It was very tragic….and not another one has been easily found. So, while I know that I could probably pop onto Amazon and order one…..Crafty Mom decides to make something instead.
I used a pattern from The Long Thread that I found pretty quickly thanks to Google. It was easy to follow….and finding the website has provided some great inspiration! However, I did not have the exact materials suggested, so I improvised. I used 100% cotton that was supposed to become a crop jacket for Girly Girl, a cut up tablecloth from the dollar store that had been used at our wedding reception last month, and scrap fleece from making scarves for my nieces a million years ago. My original idea had been to use a zipper to close the opening, but I did not have a separating zipper handy…..so there is velcro instead.
