kate5kiwis: S10's Unbelievably Cool ManBag


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

S10's Unbelievably Cool ManBag

S10 came searching for a morning kiss wearing his old fave jeans, which have been out on many skater-boy missions and now have knees to prove it. inspired by his sister's creative buzz, he wanted to learn to use the sewing machine.
i'm not sure what the general protocol is for this kind of thing (cos Auntie Mim taught R14 how to use The Machine), but we started with a tandem effort of S10 operating the foot pedal and moi giving the verbal instructions and feeding the fabric through the presser foot until S10 had enough know-how to do it self.
and do it self, he did:

it took all morning, and lookit the skater-boy results:
(gosh you're a GORGEOUS boy!!) meet the latest Turn Your Jeans Into A Couture MANBAG which is lined with S10's favourite summer shirt...
yeah, the inside skinside is covered in flames and dragons (at the bottom, hiding).... and even has its very own secret pocket. cos we're all about the secret pocket.

What an amazing bag. He's one cool dude.

My ten (oops he was 11 last week - haven't caught up yet) year old has jeans like that - no knees and the legs are turning into skirts. But he loves them. Although he has now been banned by the ski club from wearing them as they do not constitute trousers anymore apparently.

"and do it self, he did"

Wow! That's just amazing. He was not just motivated to want one made from his old pants, he was motivated to make it himself! A kid like that is free to do and be whatever he wants in his life. Isn't that fantastic? :D
