I snagged my favorite babysitter for my girls from across the street. We brainstormed and decided she needed a new tote bag to carry all her goodies in that she brings when she babysits. This girl means business.
I had a great time chatting with her while she painted up her bag.
They were perfectly easy for her to use, and yet there were plenty of options for her to run with her own creativity. Some of the Zip Screen stencils worked best if she taped around it so it didn’t run off where she didn’t want it.
Most of the designs come on a single sheet but they are easily cut up to use separately. The best thing about them is that the screens are re-usable. We used some at least 3 times and they were still sticking on securely even after a good wash.
After she decorated the fabric, I taught her how to sew up a simple tote. I enjoy teaching kids how to sew much more than sewing for myself. It is such a joy to see them so pleased with learning and creating.
