"Not Exactly My Colors.....





Grams." I have had the wonderful experience of teaching my just twelve year old grandson to sew. And yes, these are not his colors, this is a bag he would never carry...and I probably would not use it either.....But, it is what was on hand, someone, a little girl might like this and it was a good beginning for sewing and matching up seams.
I think that he did a fantastic job. The only thing I did was show him what to do and I did do the pressing..showing him the difference between pressing and ironing.
I also helped him to sew a pillow case..no pictures..but flannel with "POW and SMACK and SOCCER and FOOTBALL on it.
I am amazed at how well he did. do click on to see how wonderfully he did

Best

You get the Grandma of the Month award! I love that you have taken the time to show him how to sew. It looks like he did a fantastic job, but I'm not surprised with such a fabulous teacher. I'm tuning in to what Jacquie said and thinking this might be a good summer project for the boys.

Oh, and maybe he could give it to his mom for Mother's Day or something.
