Lion Brand Yarn

  By Kids For Kids: August 19, 2005


Back 2 School!

It's about time for school to start!  (Can you believe it!?!)

This issue focuses on fun things to make and wear for that first day of school and all the days thereafter!   Little accessories -- belts, hair ties and even a makeup bag to help organize your backpack and make this the best school year ever!


Quick Tip

Want to jazz up boring school folder? Use a hot glue gun and yarn leftovers. Trace out a fun design on the folder, glue down the yarn and maybe a few jewels and then you'll be ready for school in style!

A little glue and left over yarn makes your folders special!

Makeup Bag 
Are you tired of keeping your makeup in a Zip-Lock baggie in your back-pack?  Maybe that was great for LAST year, but its just NOT the coolest look even if it is cheap and practical.

We have just the bag for you, made out of sparkly Festive Fur!!  It's easy to make and it won't break the bank.  AND it is exactly sized so you can put that ol' Zip-Lock in it if you really want to.
