One of our summer bingo chart to do list items was “sewing project with Mom.”
I wanted come up with something useful and something that would really get my boys interested.
So I made a super easy wallet pattern for kids. The pattern was just right for Owen who is seven. I tried to get Reid involved too but he’s in a really stubborn stage right now and just wanted me to make the whole thing for him.
It was neat to sit down with Owen and teach him about using a pattern, what feed dogs are (he was amazed at ‘the little claws’ grabbing the fabric), and stuff like that. I was excited to show him that yes, sewing is cool and not just for me! :)
He seemed to really enjoy it and was so excited to use his wallet when he was done.

Hope you’re enjoying your summer!
