Seamstresses ... Yes, ma'am!

They've been asking and asking and so we plunged in together to learn some simple sewing! Yes sirree, my little ones, with a little training and practice, figured it right out. We covered all the basics ... making and cutting out the pattern, pinning, sewing straight lines and sharp corners, ironing down seams and the basics of running the sewing machine. The girls produced some sweet doll pillows and blankets! Love this precious time with them ... watching them grow and learn and be creative. Such a precious gift from God!

The machine (thank you to "Big Grannie")!

Pinning it just right!

Now, sewing it together ... watching those lines carefully!

Very proud of my girls and their finished products! Great job!

Yay! I am so proud of you for teaching your girls how to sew. It's something I've always wanted to do...maybe Hannah Grace and I can learn together.
