Hi, 

 

I am trying to find a way to protect the school stuff of DD1 without using plastic. We used Cardboard folders, but they look as if they accidentally went into the shredder...and I feel bad for DD1 if her stuff looks so untidy...

 

is there a way to not use plastic and still have neat stuff (even for a chaos princess :) ) 

 

thanks!

Do you sew? There are lots of free patterns online for fabric or patchwork notebook covers. I'm sure they cod be adapted for folders as well.

I do sew, and I love the way the fabric covers look...but how do they look after being carried around by a seven year old? 

 

does anybody have experience how good that keeps up?

Hm, good point. I don't know I'm afraid. Scotchguard perhaps? Or wash them now and then with the school cloths if there aren't too many.
