Back to the School Bus Challenge over at The Twinery

 Hi I have a fun project for The Twinery's Back to the School Bus Challenge.  The "twist" on the challenge is to incorporate some of our yellow twine into your project.

For my project, I created this adorable "Chuck Taylor"-like sneaker using an SVG file from the Back to the Books SVG Kit over at  I filled it with some fun colored pencils tied with some Solid Marigold Twine of course!  This would be a really cute pencil holder for a child or a teacher!  I just placed a small jar inside the sneaker to hold everything.

The paper is from Doodlebug's Take Note collection.  I thought the symbols on the paper were perfect for a school project and the graph paper was just too cute!

I used some Solid Charcoal Twine to create the line along the "sole" of the sneaker and the shoe laces were created by finger crocheting some Solid Honeydew Twine.

I even added some Doodlebug Washi "aglets" to the end of my twine laces!

The Twinery's  Back to the School Bus Challenge is running until August 30th.  Link up your project and you could win this FABULOUS prize!!!
