    My dd has been begging to make a tote bag. We spent a better part of today making it. I did the cutting and ironing, but she did ALL the sewing!! She's very proud of herself, as am I!!

    That was her idea. I just wish I could figure out how to keep it from puckering.

    Great job on a cute purse. She looks so proud of her work. Confidence will help her to go far in life and sewing is a great skill to have.

    I think it's wonderful that you're teaching your cute little one how to sew!
    She did a great job! Looks like she already knows how :)

    Very cute...she did a great job! Did you stabilize your embroidery with an iron on stabilizer cut to the size of the whole pocket (leave it on cuz it helps firm up the pocket too--just treat it as one fabric)? It's adorable, anyway. She can carry lots of good things in that bag!

    I used an interfacing that I already had, ironed to the back of the whole pocket piece. She's already got her school folder in it, to take to school tomorrow.

    Just looks like you needed a heavier stabilizer, you can add a heavy weight tear away with the iron on...just takes practice on experimenting with the different stabilizers to get it right. Also, do not over tighten your material in your hoop, it will pucker as it comes back to it's relaxed shape. Hope this helps.

    When you say heavy weight tear away, do I need to look for fusible?
