Awesome. When I was 8, all I sewed were dingy little pillows.
Great job! Can't wait to see that quilt.  Wink

I have an 8 year old son interested in sewing.  I let him push the peddle while I guide the fabric.  "Ok, go....slowly now...and....stop...STOP!  STOP!  STOP!  Ok, that wasn't too bad."
Crafting with kids--fun, but rarely relaxing!
Haha!  That's so funny and I guess the reason why I haven't seriously shown my 8 yo daughter how to start sewing yet...but she wants to learn, though, and even talks about getting a "little" sewing machine for Christmas. 

Nice job on this bag and tell your son that he does very nice work!  Grin

crikey! I couldn't imagine teaching anyone to sew. it'd just be a nightmare! plus, your son's bag looks a hell of a lot more sophisticated than some of the stuff I've made recently... seriously, well done to both of you. you've got my utmost support as crafters and recyclers.

Your son has the best parents ever. It's inspiring to find people passing down valuable skills and a respect for our environment and community.

Your posts make me happy. Smiley

Wow! Thanks  Grin This post is so old, we made this backpack so long ago! He is 10 now! We promised a tutorial and everything. I am embarrassed. Well, we are people of our word here, so we will do it eventually.... Smiley Maybe after Christmas, when life goes a little slower.... right now we are in the middle of moving and then the whole handmade Christmas thing is going to be keeping me busy.... Thanks for all the kind words from everyone. Riley feels like a celebrity! Smiley
