Last week I realized that now that Rebecca is 9 years old (how did that happen?) she might be interested in learning how to sew. I asked her and she was really excited to learn. We started with a tag toy as it's fairly simple sewing in straight lines and we had such a good time working on this project together! The first time I pulled out the camera to take her picture of our project she pretended to be shy. You can see that that didn't last long!
Here you have it, Rebecca's first sewing project: a tag toy!
Removing the pins after the first run around the toy using a zig-zag stitch
Sewing the front and back together. Hey, where did the tags go?
That's a lot of material to get through a small space!
Hey! How did they get there??
Showing her finished project off with pride!
I had originally intended to send this blanket to Ohio where I had an order outstanding but I quickly decided I couldn't part with her first creation. We talked it over and Rebecca's first sewing project is now tucked safely away for her to give to her new cousin Hannah when she arrives! A gift from the heart!
