Sewing with the grandchildren again – Euan’s snappy bag

The grandchildren were staying again this summer and, of course, they wanted to sew on Nanna’s ‘awesome’ machine.  I had searched out a project for them both.

Euan (9), made a ‘snappy bag’ and I followed the free pattern by Rose and Heather at Sew Stylish Boutique. Here we are ready to start.

Definitely within the scope of a 9 year old.  We then wrote up the process for his sewing badge at Cub Scouts.
