These ‘make your own’ satchel bags arrived in our little store a couple of weeks ago and, although they are designed for kids around the age of 8 to complete, I have been busting to get my hands on one ever since.
The kit includes everything needed to make one fabulous chunky felt satchel. All the pieces are pre-cut so all you need is your hands, some time and enthusiasm.
All up I spent about an hour stitching the whole thing together. I found the whole project very relaxing and somewhat therapeutic! So THAT is what all my sewing friends are going on about! I even let my 7 year old help me with some of the stitching, but mostly I just hid in the corner, stitching, stitching …
The 7 year old is terribly happy to take ownership of the bag. Here’s a bit of a dodgy shot of him in his jammies modelling his new crafty satchel that is already now home to all his favourite colouring in books and textas.
Not only is this a fab gift for primary school age kids but I also think it’s a lovely idea for a mama (or papa) to make one for, or with, their younger kids.
WIN a $200 gift voucher to spend in our terribly fabulous little store.
