Description

I need an easy project to teach boys six boys, aged 11-17 yrs. old to make. I want them to leave with something they can use. I decided on the drawstring backpack. I'll have all the pieces pre cut and they should be able to complete in 2 hours or less. That's the time frame I have - 2 hours. This one is lined with rip stop nylon. I haven't decided yet if I will have them line theirs or not. Nylon is also slippery. Maybe theirs should be cotton. As you can see I still have a few details to work out.

You are amazing to take on this challenge in two hours. The boys will enjoy making these. Just getting their hands on a sewing machine will be a kick for them. Looks good so far. Good luck working out the design. I can see these in camo prints...perhaps solid color linings...maybe in flannel. Please post pictures of the boys with their finished projects.

Charwirfs I will post pics definitely. These are boys in the foster system that a friend of mine works with once a week. So I'm a little nervous how they will react to the whole sewing idea. But my friend assured me he is confident they will be receptive to it. I've also never taught a class before, so it will be a first for me too.

Sending you positive energy. They will love it and you will do well.
