Coming soon

Keller’s been taking piano lessons for a month or two now. The poor kid’s been schlepping his books in a Target bag. He finally demanded I do something about it.

“Mom! Don’t make it girly like Macy’s! It needs to be manly!”

Who knew 7 year olds were so worried about their masculinity?

So, here’s what I came up with.


Manly messenger style piano bag tutorial and manly freezer paper piano keys stencil coming tomorrow…or something like that.


Please follow and like us:


  1. That's awesome!
    Not nearly as manly as that rifle cozie is gonna be for J, but you're getting there.

  2. Love it!!!

  3. Karin (the Mrs.) says:

    Oh yes, very manly indeed. Great bag!

  4. anekzura says:

    very well süper bag.

  5. Oh, yes. As the mom to a 7 yo boy, I can attest to the need for manliness in their life. Mine needs manly body wash, can't use the same fruity stuff that his lil sister uses.

  6. Kristine Robinson says:

    Wow – you're fast! turned out great. And definitely manly.

  7. totally awesome, Char. and so manly, Billy Joel would probably use it.

  8. Very manly. I think Liberace had one very similar.

  9. Me and Madeline says:

    Oh my goodness! That's awesome! I want a shirt with those keys, very cool.

  10. Mom2fur says:

    Cool! He's so young to worry about being 'manly.' My son got to that point around age 16 or so. Told me to stop buying 'all that girly-smelling body wash and shampoo. I don't want to smell like flowers!' (So now he uses 'manly' stuff like Old Spice or Irish Spring, LOL!)

  11. Life in Rehab says:

    Tres cool there, Mom. I can't wait to see the tutorial. By the way, I love how your personality comes across on your blog.

  12. Kari @ Ucreate says:

    Coolest piano bag EVER!

  13. That's an awesome bag! My kids so need one for their music.

    With all your free time, if you ever want to create a cute girl's dance bag, I'd be all ears (eyes?). Thanks for the fun ideas!

  14. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked
