Tutorial Tuesday :: Back to School Round Up

As summer draws to a close (booooo!) it is back to school time and with that comes new clothes for the kids! Dana Willard of MADE has put together this amazing round up of back-to-school sewing tutorials that we just had to share with you for this week's Tutorial Tuesday.  Dana includes a wide range of school clothing and accessory tutorials with projects for both boys and girls.  Thank you Dana!
In addition to all of the tutorials that Dana found from various blogs, she also included some of her own sewing tutorials that would be perfect for back to school sewing. Here are a few of our favorites.
