Stickers for books and notebooks!

Thanks for peeking in on my blog! I have been working very hard to finish my studies and my blog is on "vacation", but I wanted to share some stuff I am doing for Lorelys which is going to school on August. I made an illustration of a little girl with butterflies on a sunny day to make a pencil pouch for her and I just designed some cute matching stickers for her books and notebooks.  They say: "This belongs to:" and one of them has the logo of the school she is attending to, I love how these turned out!

I also wanted to consult with all of you wonderful girls because I am having trouble on transferring the image to a canvas fabric to make the pouch, so if you have any advice please comment to let me know!  I think the image is just too big (8 X 9 in). I want to make this style of pencil pouch that I found from Kukubee on Etsy:
I just fell in love with these little pouches and wanted to make one for my little one with her name. So if you have any advice or ideas, please let me know.

Back to School!

Yeah, I know it is too early, but my free time is scarce this days. My little princess is going to Pre-Pre Kinder this year (tears in my eyes!) and of course I am already preparing some cute stuff for her to take to school! I am very busy with working full time and finishing my studies, so I barely have time to attend my Etsy Shop or do more designs!  But I just could not resist, for now, I am going to share this design I am working on for her.
I am going to make a pencil bag, out of this design... I don't know how to sew, but I think I can do it! I have the process on my mind, and of course when I finish it you will be the first to see it!

Other things I want to do include a notebook cover, recyclable treats bag and some other cute stuff. I can't believe my little baby is going to school on August. But now I need your help:

 What handmade things have you made for you kid's back to school?  I would love to hear from you and get more ideas, see pictures, etc! Thanks!!!
