20 Free Patterns for Back to School

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Back to School time is coming quickly! More quickly for you if you live in the U.S. I think 🙂 In Ontario, Canada, my children start back the 2nd week of September this year and school runs until June 29th, 2016.  I honestly never realized the school seasons were different between the U.S. and Canada – our spring breaks are different too 🙂

Hopefully you still have time to make a few of these items for your little one’s before they go back to school – I love the easy pencil toppers and the pencil cases are a fun idea too!
