My sons backpack fell apart. so did his pants. He wanted a sewing lesson, so we took the pants, a zipper, and the straps from the backpack and made a whole new backpak! He did all the sewing that was just straight lines, and he got to show off at school. Very cool. He wanted to post and show off. Smiley
  Now he wants to make a quilt! :0 he already started on it, and even did a rustic applique!!

Big shout-out to you and Riley.  The backpack looks very professional.  And using recycled pants is very cool.


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!

Awesome job! I did a quilting project once with a lindergarten class. They colored on thier fabric squares and then got to stand on the pedal while I ran the fabric through to piece it together. Needless to say... I was putting my life in my own hands!

Good for him! That's so awesome! I love the pockets on the front and the color is really cool!

STOP STOP STOP!!!!!That is so funny. That is exactly how it went. I also have a 6 year old, and he really enjoyed the sewing. It was like a little home ec class in here this weekend. Good thing I have so many machines everywhere! My six year old made a bib for the baby! I don't have a picture yet because it is already dirty! Smiley
