Sewing 4 kidz

In Design Technology we're making 'money containers' (that's a non gender-specific purse, to you and me). Who knew that children these days don't know how to sew? Just 3 out of 20 kids could thread a needle, nevermind attempt a running stitch. When I was their age I was glued to my embroidery and tapestry sets...

Still, the lessons were a lot of fun, even if my thumb and I were unimpressed at being turned into a needle-threading machine. I couldn't bear to miss out on all the fun so I whipped up a purse at home to show the kids what they could potentially do.

"Aw man, Miss is a professional."

Yes. My purse is well sik. Not bad for a half hour job.
