I’ve been working on a sewing project with one of my daughter’s lately. I wish I was a seamstress, but it doesn’t come easily and I can’t say it’s my favorite activity. The irony of my teaching someone to sew hasn’t escaped me. What a mom will do for a child.
After a month, we finally finished! I know my sewing skills have expanded, hopefully my daughter learned a bit and gained some confidence. I tried to encourage her to start out with a simpler project, but she’s a stuffed animal lover. Next time we will definitely be working on something simple like a skirt or pajama pants so she can get more time behind the machine! This project was a great reminder in reading the directions all the way through before beginning.The final product has a lot of personality and we love him (or her – I don’t know if that detail has been determined yet). I love the splash of color in his ears and on his paws. This morning I saw him sitting and reading my daughter’s book. They are quite the pair!
