My 3 yr old nephew can't remember the word sew...he says KyKy can fix stuff. He said he needed me to fix him a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle bag. I found a cute tutorial for a bag with a window that wasn't too girly and he loved it. Since it's lined he also chose the popcorn lining too. Link to the tutorial below :-)

You've done a brilliant job of this one, Aunt! How nice also to find someone who appreciates our sewing skills -even if they don't know the actual word! Hope he'll be a fan for life :)

When he asks what I'm doing I tell him sewing, or embroidery or serging a seam etc. but it's too much for him to remember so he lumps it all together as "fixing". He brings me every loose thread he finds on his clothing for me to snip it off. He loves the machines but wants to touch them while they are running so I've had to tell him that they bite! He is very interested in watching me rethread or fill bobbins and will chase after snips of thread that fall to floor. He's now requested a cape with an "S" so he can fly, lol.

This is a great bag - love the vinyl window. I am not surprised he loves it.

TY for the link - it only took me about 2 hours to find my way back here! I love exploring blogs - they have so many interesting things, tutorials, links, sew alongs, flickr links - it's amazing I find my way home sometimes.

Bag looks great. Bet he loves it. Thanks also for the link. I love to make little bags with vinyl in them. Thinking I could make a sewing bag with vinyl in all 4 sides so you can see what is in there. Ideal for mini projects or projects on the road. Maybe toiletries bag also. Lynx
