A cosy afternoon



Yesterday I have had a cosy afternoon. My grandson ( 10 years old) was here and wanted to sew! At school on the craft lessons he once tried to use a sewing machine and he seems it was fun. And because his mother doesn't have one they came to our place yesterday after lunch.
He didn't know what to make so I asked him if he would like to sew a totebag to his mam.
Yes, he liked that idea. I cut up an old jeans and he found a lot of nice trims in granny's boxes! The two jeans pieces became very colorful in red, purple and gold. The favorite colors of his mother. He has sewn the whole totebag by himself except the last seam on the top were the handles come in between the lining and the outside of the bag. And proud he was!!
It was just ready before I had to cook a quick diner.
Sad enough we forgot to take a photo of the bag when it was ready.
He was só proud to give it to his mam and she was using the bag immediately and was very proud too!

I so enjoy seeing children master the sewing machine as so few seem to get the chance these days.

Congratulations Ati for encouraging your grandson to sew.
I know how much Ebony loves to sit down at my machine and create.

What a very clever Grandson you have Ati, Well done for encouraging him. Isn't it wonderful that he doesn't mind sewing, so many boys wouldn't want to. (My son likes hand sewing sometimes and he likes to customise his own clothes.) It's times like this that your Grand son will always remember. Well done! Bw Triciax
