What's old is new again

I have several nametags for my little man, James. They go on lunchboxes, backpacks, whatever. The first one I ever made for him (still my favorite) just happened to be the one I grabbed for his camp backpack this summer. Camp.. in the woods, lots of dirt, got taken EVERYWHERE....
Needless to say, it did not weather the summer very well! It was in much need of repair, and I'm happy to say that I took care of that over the past week.

Here's what it looked like when it was new, back in 2007.. I made it specifically to go on his big boy backpack when he went to preschool:

Here's what it looked like post-camp:

.. and after the restoration:


  1. Love your name tags Caryn. I've recieved lots of compliments on the ones you made the boys. Good work on the restoration.

  2. I'm so glad! They are my favorite gift to give.. I've started tying them on gift bags as a tag, and anyone with a new baby gets a set! Glad the boys are enjoying theirs.. let me know when they outgrow the ones they have and need to trade up to something more mature! :-)
