My little girl

Two weekends ago I went to a retreat at my mom's.  If you remember, I told you that my daughters were coming with me on the Friday and my 6 year old told me she wanted to sew too.
She worked on a birthday gift for one of her classmates.

I had cut out all the fabric for her and embroidered her friends' name on one of the squares.

She made a little cushion.

She's only sewn on the machine once before but has always loved to watch my mom and I.

She did so good!  I simply guided her hands a little.  I even let her use the iron... she was really happy about that!

She made a 10" cushion using this pattern from Bunny Hill.
We didn't applique since I had embroidered her friends' name, and we used pink minky fabric for the back.  She stuffed it by herself as well.  All I did was hand stitch the opening closed.

She was so proud to give it to her friend on Saturday at the birthday party!

My little girl has come a long way!  Here she is sewing with Grand-maman when she was 16 months old.  I hope this is just the beginning for her!


  1. That is so sweet!! What a wonderful thing to share with her and look how happy and proud she looks!!
