While I didn't necessarily intend to use this book with my boys, they browsed the pages and found these drawstring bags. They were practically begging me to let them make one of their own. Oh, the things they were imagining their bags could hold...tools, marbles, 5 smooth stones (if you're David from the Bible), weapons, flashlights and books for bedtime, bathroom stuff, and so on.
Daddy protested a little, but the boys had their hearts set on it...so I promised we would use "boy" fabric! Elijah and Luke did a great job sticking with it to complete their bags. Isaac did a great job being patient and watching mama sew his bag to show the bigger boys how to do it. That is, after he did a few stitches and sewed it to my bedspread! Ha, ha!
The totes turned out great and the boys were so pleased with their effort. After all, even boys need to know how to fix some stitches here and there in life, right?! And they have not done a single girly thing with the bags since they were finished!
