Excellent idea, and excellent job! I wish I was any use with a sewing machine. The fact that an 8-year old can do it and I can't... *toddles away to cry in shame*  Embarrassed

how very cool!! I love it and I bet he is so proud to show it off to his friends...looks very good--
GREAT JOB RILEY!

you let them both sew on your machine??  I am planning on buying a little machine from hsn--not too fast for my five year old...she likes to push the gas hard on my machine and want her to have something of her own to screw up...LOL

the one time I let her push the pedal on my machine I was telling her...slow down...no slow down NOW!! argh! I would just buy a secondhand machine, but don't want her to hurt herself!

Grin You all are making Riley feel so good! He did have help you know, so I will accept the compliments as well...  Roll Eyes

I let them both sew on my machines. I am crazy. I only allow it with lots of supervision though. And one of the machines I thought was old and junky and had avoided it for years. I kept it in a box in the basement. I got it out so they could both sew at the same time. I actually like it better than the one I have been using in its place. And it wasn't broken... I just didn't know anything when it went screwy. It just needed cleaning, and thread tension readjustment! The boys are getting better and better as the days go by, and I am not mortified when I see them sit down to the sewing machine anymore. I think the quilt has been abandoned though! Smiley HA hA HA such lofty ideas we have when we first start crafting!!!
