Sewing for the Kids

I had a busy week sewing for the kids. Matching aprons for Madeline and Addie have been on my to do list and Wyatt, who is obsessed with Indiana Jones requested a messenger bag.  

I found this great tutorial on Pinterest for the messenger bag. 

This tutorial is easy to follow and "Indy" had his bag in less than an hour. I should have made the straps longer as Wyatt is bigger so the bag would hang down lower.  It could be mistaken as a purse or a "man bag" if you are Joey.  Am I showing my age?

The recent obsession with Indiana Jones began with the completion of an Indiana Jones Lego set a few weeks ago and Daddy and Wyatt playing Lego Indiana Jones every available chance.  I found a hat (adult size) at Meijer for $2.50 after Halloween and made the whip out of brown knit fabric (although it still stings a little- ask Luke).  


  1. You are the coolest mom! I honestly love that 'man bag'!

  2. Love it! Your little Indiana Jones is too cute.

  3. I love your creations! That messenger bag is great- I would love one for myself! I look at your pictures and the kitchen and can't help notice how clean your floor is. Oh my gosh, if you ever saw where the floor meets the bottom of my oven...yuck! :)

  4. Kristen, You are so funny! I have a gap at the bottom of the stove so it is easier to clean underneath.
