So this summer, Barbara started a little summer sewing activity for some of the older grand-kids. The kids named it Make It Monday :) Each Monday afternoon, and then some other days in between, a few of the grandkids met with Grandma to work on their desired project. This last week my 3 oldest finished their projects.
Jessi made this adorable owl purse. Her bff (and cousin) has a matching one. They are totally loving their matching purses and can be found sporting them all over town :)
Jessi did such a great job. She cut out all her pieces, stitched her applique in place, and then put the bag together with the help from Grandma. She really is staring to be quite the little seamstress.
Spencer and Kristian decided they wanted to make "Ranger" capes based off of the books "Rangers Apprentice" that Spencer is reading right now. They loved cutting out all of their wonky camoflouge shapes to add to the capes.
They didn't however, love stitching all of those wonky shapes in place. Spencer set himself a goal of so many a week to have it done by this weekend. It was a great way to work through it I thought. (Grandma helped a lot with Kristian's, he decided pretty early out of the gate that secure stitching really wasn't his thing :) The boy's absolutely love their capes and can be found whipping around and hiding in corners every 2 minutes.
I want to shout out a huge Thank You to Barbara!!! She really is absolutely amazing. She works with the kids so well and is so patient with them, even when they are getting a little crazy and antsy. Mom, you really made the kids summer with Make it Monday!! And just in case you are wondering, yes, I know that I have the best Mother In Law in the world, and I am so very happy to have her in our lives!!!
