DIY Schoolbag – Make It Your Very Own…

Since 1978 until today, the best selling, best of the best, schoolbag in France for kindergarten and elementary school kids has been the reliable Tann’s bag. Why? Because Tann’s schoolbags are high quality, sturdy, and able to withstand the heavy books that even young kids need to carry. The ever famous slogan, “T’as ton Tann’s ?”… or “Do you have your Tann’s?” is often heard whenever speaking about going back to school.  We love the eco-friendly Tann’s schoolbags not just because of their quality and reliability but also because they have a nice retro style.

Although Tann’s may be rather rare outside of France, almost every French school kid these days seems to have a Tann’s. Ok, we could have opted for another brand, but we really, really wanted our Tann’s!  Therefore, we decided to go for a bit of customization to make our child’s sweet little schoolbag into an original.

In order to customize your Tann’s or any other school bag, all you need is an iron and some patches. We used the rustines (small patches) from Macon and Lesquoy because they are well made and offer really cool designs.  

Place all patches in their desired positions and simply iron on the patches with the iron at the highest setting.  In order to assure that the patches stay in place we also recommend hand stitching a few stitches around each patch to withstand wear and tear!
