Phoebe’s book bag

Phoebe got a sewing machine for her 8th birthday last week. She's been sewing lots of practice swatches and made a cute little quilt for her doll. Today we made a book bag. We're headed over to the library to get her first library card so she decided she needed a pocket to hold her library card and that it should be a sun. Zippers as straps was a co-decision, mostly hers because she dug them out. The fabric choice though was all me. She is so impatient. She grabs the first thing she touches, yep, that's it. I had to steer her gently.

    I have that sewing machine (in pink) on our wish list for my daughter’s birthday – can’t wait to hear how you like it. I’m not an accomplished seamstress, so I need her to have something easy;)

    My daughter got that machine when she was eight and …sometimes I steal it to use it myself as its so lightweight but runs so nicely. Good choice and cute bag. Love to see these girls take their machine and run with it :)
