After completely 12 weeks of Sewing Club at the school the one person that I can really see has caught the sewing bug is my own daughter. When she started joining me on a Monday afternoon I think she did it because she “had” to, but as time has gone on and her skill has improved she has started to ask to sew outside of class time.
I still have a few repairs to make to this Singer hand-crank, but as it is working DD2 wanted to have a go with it to work on her book cover that we were making in school. The nice thing about it is that as she is the “motor” it can’t get away from her.
Not stopping at book covers, she made a little duck for her friend’s birthday. I helped her find a pattern and pressed the fabric wing with starch and freezer paper, but she did the rest on her own. Little did I realize that while I haven’t been looking she has learned to thread her own needle, knot it with a quilters knot and also knot off at the end.
Until next time...♥
