Pretty good

My girls will enjoy working on this project. The fun part starts by buying the materials with them, let them choose the colors, etc. Sounds like a lot of fun.

I think this is a great project for girls and boys. Remember boys can learn to sew and they can learn to make gifts for Mother's Day or a sister's birthday. Keep the great ideas flowing Angeles.

Angeles, your project sounds like it is lots of fun. It gives a young girl a chance to sew something she can use, and be creative with the decorating (and choice of fabrics)!

I think this is a nice project for girls, it is easy, practical, pretty, and a child can do it in no time at all. Can we see a picture of the project?
Best regards for this project.
