One of our lovely, older neighbors is trying to downsize. She is cleaning out items and gave some recently to the kids. Blackburn was gifted with a seal, dog and snake beanie baby and an awesome green frisbee that he will not put down. She gave Isabella a poetry book, a bear beanie baby and a pillow with a heart made of roses. Vita got a baby doll with its own chair.
I loved Soulemama’s post this week about making her daughter a surprise studio for her birthday. It got me thinking about sewing with little ones. I guess in my mind, I thought the kids were too young to learn on a machine. After reading her post, I realized they won’t know how to use the machine correctly or the supplies carefully unless I show them – no matter what their age may be. So I plan on spending some time on Sunday with them and the sewing machine. I was in 8th grade the first time I used one, it was for Home Ec class. What age did you first use a sewing machine?
