My munchkin (who is four) has been showing a lot of interest in sewing lately. Today we decided to give it a go during her brother's nap time.
I let her choose her thread and bobbin color (purple and red), and she picked strings out of my scrap/strings bin, and we just started sewing. At first I did the foot pedal for her, but within a short time she was doing it almost all by herself, with a little help staying straight and knowing when to stop. You can see how she's sitting on the front edge of my chair here. (This picture was tricky to take.)
I can't get enough of this face. =) She said she would like to make it into a pillow, so that is what we will do. I don't know if we'll use a pillow form or just stuff it, we'll see.
I love this kid.
