History Sewing

One of the things our history book, Story of the World, has is an activities section to choose from, if you want, when you finish a chapter in the book. We just completed chapter 1 which is about the ancient nomads and first farmer's.
i knew right away when i saw the sewing activity that this was the one Avery would want to make. The lesson said to make a prehistoric hunter's "game bag". I did not have any animal print fabric but i did have this one that looks like scales. Which was perfect since the girl in the story was catching lizards with hers.

Avery did a super job. She sewed it herself(with Hello Kitty) and threaded the drawstring as well. I was proud of her and so was she. It now is tucked away in her hiking/nature bag that she made in case she catches anything while she is outside. I hope she does not bring me home a lizard. Sewing makes school so much fun!!!

Avery, Grammie is very proud of you too! I think that bag turned out very well. Now, go and find a lizard to put in it and surprise Mommy!!!

She looks so cute and so proud of herself. I love the lizard bag. Julia was very intrigued and also very excited to hear that Avery is doing the same history as we are.

Love it! We're going to make a trapper's bag soon. I'm going to have to look for a pattern for that. Wish me luck!
