Teaching kids to sew can be so much fun! Our daughter has been learning how to sew and one of my favorite ways to teach sewing is by having “Sew Along with Me” sessions. When we do this, we set up both of our sewing machines and then do each step of the sewing process side by side. You can also do this with just one sewing machine. Just take turns doing each step.
A couple of months ago, I made my daughter’s friend this mini messenger bag for her birthday and it was a big hit at the party! So much, that one of the other friends there asked if we could make her one and my daughter wanted her own as well. Perfect opportunity for a “Sew Along With Me” session! If you want to make your own bag, the link above has all the instructions and pattern! It is fun to make, especially when you’re teaching an eager student to sew!
Here we are cutting out the fabric for each of our mini messenger bags.
And all the cut pieces together.
Then we began sewing together!
Here she is hard at work!
Our bags are almost finished!
And here is the finished product! Taryn made the one on the left for herself and I made the one on the right for one of her friends. Didn’t they turn out so cute?! Taryn has been taking hers to school everyday, so I’m pretty sure she likes it! I know she is proud of herself for making it too!
I hope you all have a great day!
