My niece is starting kindergarten in summer. In Switzerland kids don't need to take too much to kindergarten- only a small snack and a water-bottle- so they carry small bags with them.
I had the honour to sew her bag. In the beginning of June I will be in Switzerland for a few days (adding some days after a business trip to Munich) and then I can give her the bag personally.
My niece is a country girl- growing up in the mountains. I chose a goat and I hope she will like it.
My sewing machine is getting old. I have a very old Bernina that my mother once bought second hand and brought to Israel for me. It is the same model I learned to sew with at home. Must be over 40 years old. But I start to have problems with the thread tension. I can adjust it but it's getting harder. I can still do button holes, but some of the "automatic" is not working anymore and I need to use some tricks.
I should save some money and buy a new one- leave the old one maybe for the kids to learn.
