Lately, our once little William has been insisting that he is a grown up. He drinks “coffee” (water in a coffee cup). He plays video games (or at least yells at the controller). He even works from home (by doing little chores). And although his “grown-up” life is totally full, there’s nothing he’d rather do than ride that big yellow school bus with the rest of the kiddos and go to class (but only if it’s OK for mommy to sit right beside him).
Poor little William. All the other kids are doing “First Day of School” photo shoots, and he’s left in the dust.
So, I decided to make him a little crochet banner that celebrated him, school or not.
It’s really easy to personalize this pattern with fun colors and a cute cord. I used a simple white cord wrapped with leftover bright blue yarn to make sure everything coordinated. (You can make your own banner with the pattern here).
William loved seeing his name in “sho-shay” (his word for “crochet”). It’s the perfect present for the summer months, when you just can’t make your favorite kiddos cute hats and blankets and mittens.
