He did a great job! It looks very well made and the fabrics he chose look really good together. I have 2 ferrets and this is such a nice idea. My ferrets love to be snuggled down in a hammock or sleep sack, they would probably love having a cute bag like this to be carried in!

Im very impressed! great work for a 7 yr old! He is a very talented, generous boy! You must be sooooo proud of him! I think handmade gifts are amazing, even more so when they are thought out so well. I'm sure his sister will be proud to tote her ferret around in. Kudos! Grin

Thank you to each one of you for responding to him!!  I have let him read everyone's comments.  He is blushing and says "I guess I did good then!"  lol   

Yes, he really is 7 although he wants everyone to know he is almost 8 as April is getting close!  hehehehe

I have always done crafts with and around my children.  They have been doing them pretty much from their birth.  Seth is really the only one who has shown an interest in my sewing machine although I have taught his sister (17) as well.   As for the fabric selection...that was all him with the exception of me pointing out that a couple of his first choices were just a bit off and he made the adjustment.

Chaos reigns here in our home as we have such a huge age gap and finding peace is not possible.   However, we find many truces with creativity.   We all share a close knit love for each other but it usually shown best through things such as this bag!!

He did awesome! A very experienced sewer would be justifiably proud of the finished product, so for someone SO young this is amazing.

What a lucky sister to have such a thoughtful, talented brother. He did a great job!

that is amazing, at 7 I could barely thread a needle let alone do that kind of work! and also, what a lovely thought about his sister!

Man, I wish my 7 year old brother would make something like this for me! He does give me lots of hugs and pictures that he colors, though. Way to go, awesome sewing kid! I hope that my 4 year old sews as he grows up as well. He sure loves to watch and help me with my pins! Seeing these sorts of posts make me want to encourage him to sew, too!

I am amazed that he was able to do this at age 7!  Definitely tell him he did an awesome job.  I used to have ferrets, and I bet they would have loved something like that!  And the fact that he thought about a pocket on the outside to carry stuff for the critter is great, too.  I often forget little details like that until I'm done with a project, and then . . . too late!  Definitely an awesome present!!
