I remember when I was little, I had got a toy sewing machine for Christmas...I don't think I ever made anything on it, but I sure sewed together lots of scraps! One day my brother was supposed to be laying down for a nap, and we heard the machine running...mom went upstairs to find him sitting on the floor sewing his lil heart out. It makes me laugh to think about it! You talking about your little ones sewing just made me think of it. That's so awesome that you let them use your machines though...the crafty stuff really does stick with you. I don't have the same passions my mother has when it comes to crafting, but I have passion about other crafts but I don't know that I would have thought of crafting the way I do had she not shared so much with me growing up....

HA HA HA!!!!!!! I will have to have him make another! it was pretty easy actually! Maybe he and I can make one this weekend! Smiley I am going to go check the zipper collection! (We'll see if he will be up to it, finicky finicky kids I tell ya!) I will do a tutorial all alone if he won't help, but it would be so fun to do it with him! I bet he will do it, he is a sucker for positive attention!  Cheesy If he won't do it, I am SURE his 6 year old brother will.

Great job Riley & Mum!!  I bet Riley is so proud of his work!!  As he should - what a project to tackle!!!

Echoing everyone's comments about raising crafty boys!!!  I'm teaching my 6 year old son to sew - he sewed two pillowcases, one for him and one for his little brother.  He's sooooooo proud of it.

He did an awesome job! My mom sewed when I was little, and if I was in the position your son is in (i.e. I made something and my mom posted it online and told me how everyone was impressed with it) I would have thought that was the coolest thing ever.

And one of the machines I thought was old and junky and had avoided it for years.

The machine I use is my mom's old one, and today she had to sit and think about whether or not it's older than me! (I'm almost 22, and she decided the machine is somewhere around 15-20.) I definitely know what you mean about not knowing how to fix it when things go wrong. I'm still a baby sewer, and whenever anything happens with that machine, I try and get more and more frustrated, and end up calling my mommy. The funny thing is that I swear she doesn't even really DO anything to it, she just looks at it and it works. I don't get it. I guess the machine knows she means business.

This post brought back all sorts of good memories about my mom teaching me to sew!
