Sewing With Kids - Zipper Pouches
|Front - notice how we used the extra piece of zipper for the tab on the pink polka dotted pouch? Love.|
I have a love/hate relationship with sewing with my kids. Sewing is something I do that is "my" time. It is relaxing, fun and productive. All of those positives disappear when I sew with my kids. It is not relaxing and I really have to work on being patient. But I guess it is productive. We do make stuff that is cute and usable and I really do think it is important to teach them to sew, so I have a "Sewing With Kids" goal that I try to stick to. One project per kid per year. Yeah. Not a big goal. Baby steps. But I wanted to work it in before school started.
The pouches were a fun, quick project that is very usable and super cute and the girls had a lot of fun making them. Now I just need to get the 15 year old to sit down and make something before January 1st.....
