First on the list is the Back to School Binder Cover. No more boring three ring binders, with this binder cover you have a place for everything with a convenient front zipper pocket and a place to store your pens and pencils for easy access. The pattern even has a option to add handles so you carry your notes in style. We made our binder cover with Playground fabrics by Amy Sinibali adding touches of the AGF Denim Studio.


2. Enamor Back Pack

At AGF we are all in love with a good bag, whether it's a tote, purse, or back pack there is nothing better then a handmade bag!

3. Summer Swirl Lunch Bag 

When I was in middle school my second best part of the day was lunch time. First was of course recess! I never had a cool lunch bag like others in my class, my Mom always sent me to school with a brown paper bag lunch. If I could go back in time I would definitely make myself the Summer Swirl Lunch Bag.  Made with Fiesta fun fabric  by Dana Willard these lunch bags are the ideal way to do lunch!

4. Virginia Leggings

When I was in school the hardest thing to figure out wasn't math or biology class it was getting dressed every morning with something that was trendy and fashion forward but was also comfortable to wear. Where was AGF knit when I was going to school?! Try making a pair of these adorable Patchy Heart Leggings   designed by Megan Nielsen. Everyone in your class will be asking you where you got them. We made our legging with the bright yellow blender print print from Reverie fabrics. We added cute heart patches at the knees using our solid turquoise knit
