I have been teaching these two how to sew for about three months now. This day they were making pillowcases for their brothers for Christmas (forgot to take a picture)
They have made covers for their sewing notebooks, started a quilt, made hair bows and did a drawstring back pack.
Just love these girls, they are so eager to learn.
One thing I told the mom was, "I am not one to make the child rip out if it is not perfect". I know several people who have had terrible experiences sewing because they had to rip out and rip out until it was perfect. I told the mom that in time they will learn to do it well but for now, they do it well enough (they do rip out some but not at every turn). By no means are their projects a mess but sure they can use improvements but for now I just want them to feel joy in their accomplishments and have a love of sewing.
In return the mom does my hair...oh boy yes. I think I get the better end of the deal for sure.
