Pocket full of kisses

My oldest is going back to preschool next week after a full summer of being around me all the time. He's prone to separation anxiety, so I threw together this little project to remind him that his dad and I are thinking about him while he's in class.
When he opens his bag, he'll find a small photo of Mom & Dad and a pocket full of 'kisses and hugs' that he can tuck into his own pockets whenever he's feeling lonely at preschool. The pocket (back layer still attached so it functions as a pocket) is cut from an old pair of jeans, and I stitched a piece of clear vinyl over the top to protect the photo and keep it in place. I used my Silhouette to cut out the lettering on the photo, and a bunch of little X & O hugs and kisses (or is it kisses and hugs?) to put inside the pocket. The whole project was done in less than ten minutes, but I think it will really ease my son's transition into the routine of preschool. Linking up to: Visit Simpsonized Crafts


  1. What a smart and loving mommy you are! This is such a great idea. I wish I had done this for my Little Dude when he was that age. Now he's in Kindergarten, and he went in, sat down, and looked at me like, "Ummm, can go already!" Makes separation anxiety seem so sweet...

  2. I like the pocket full of kisses. So cute.
    Thanks for stopping by.
