Allowance = A Sewing Request
My husband and I decided last week that it was time for Lauren to start earning an allowance. We sat down as a family and made an allowance chart. It's a weekly layout, with both mandatory items, and 'bonus' points, (as well as negative points for bad behaviour). It's on a point system, where you make each point a set value, and then the number of points at the end of the week determines the allowance amount. We decided 20 cents per point was fair, and Lauren was beyond motivated to get every possible point. She had an amazing week, and yesterday, she earned her very first allowance! She was super excited, but then realized that a piggy-bank was not a practical way to take her allowance out shopping! I gave her an old wallet of mine, but she said it needed a strap... "That's what a purse is for." I said. Next thing I know, I'm sewing my little critter a purse to hold her wallet. It turned out super-cute, so I thought I would share. I am now inspired to make my own larger version, and make it my new work bag!
