Description

This is my six year old son’s very first project to sew. He wanted to sew so badly he bugged me about it all week until I finaly caved and asked him what he wanted to make and he simply said “a man band”. At first I had no clue what he was talking about then he showed me what he was thinking of.
Oh, he is a natural on my sewing machine. He did a zigzag stitch to conect the two ribbons and hand sewed the snaps. I not wanting him to get his little fingers too close to the machine needle folded and stiched the ends down, the rest was ALL him…..

    this is awesome!!! My mum taught me when I was about 7, it’s such a valuable skill! My little brother started learning too, together we made him some new bed clothes from some Camoflage cotton we found in an army disposals store. It was a butch enough project for him and sewing all those long seams was great practice! He even got so into it he used up the remnants to make some cushions and I think even a little tote bag to keep his “choose your own adventure” books in. !!! I hope your son gets as into it…

      Yea, I would like it if my son’s at least knew how to operate a sewing machine or even do it by hand. I got lucky with my six year old he loves anything hands on, my four year old is more of the “I tell you what I want made and you make it” type of guy.
