Today Isabel asked to make something and we settled on a zippered pouch. It turned out to be too advanced and I helped her a little with pretty much everything.
I used a pattern from Oh Fransson for a Perfect Zippered pouch and it turned out very well. She plans to use it when she goes on camp this summer but I think it will see use before that as a pencil case in school.
I think I will have to try and convince her to make tote bags before she starts to make anything more advanced. She wants too much too soon.
I did however set up my old Pfaff sewing machine on my sewing desk so I think I will cut up some pieces of fabric and let her try on that – maybe she can put together some charms for a doll’s quilt or something … we’ll see.
