It seems like just yesterday when my last baby was born and I was sewing little outfits for her to wear. Now here she is, all grown up and learning to sew for herself! My sweet girl has been asking for months for me to teach her, and finally we took a day last week and started what I hope will be a lifelong love for sewing.
We started with a simple project, a pillowcase. Emily did a great job sewing the seams and I was delighted at her happiness in the finished pillowcase.
Since then, I've given Emily free run of my extra sewing machine, and she has made all kinds of little bags and filled them up with stuffed kittens and other what-nots. She quickly mastered threading the machine and inserting the bobbin. I think she's on her way!
Next week I'm going to help her sew a simple skirt or perhaps a tote bag. Stay tuned. :)
