It seems that children everywhere are dangling little characters and ornaments from their backpacks. The description on one site tells it all:
“Want to dress up your backpack for school? Keychains are a great way to make a statement about who you are…..Show your hobbies, express your beliefs, or tell who you are with one of our keychains today.”
Just see how many are for sale on one site alone. Would you like a tutorial on how these can be made on any embroidery machine?
After embroidering 43 Pokemon Ninja headbands for our 6 year old grandson Alastair I made him a hanging embroidery with the text Pokemon. It hung from his backpack and was admired by his friends.
When I offered to make more, he requested several to share with his Pokemon passionate pals. Eleven were made, some to keep and some to share. He is a kind-hearted, generous little guy who thinks of others far more often than I would expect from a kindergartner.
His sweet classmate Maddie loves Frozen so he asked if I would make some for her. Laurel, his 11 yo cousin, has dubbed them Pack Pals.
