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!
