Sew with your kids


I've been letting Ethan push the "gas" on the sewing machine for awhile now and recently I've been letting him practice stitching with scrap fabric. Today I let him make his first project. We're working on a project for work (sneak peak behind Ethan on the right) and I let him use some scraps to make a simple stuffed pillow, or pin cushion. I love how intense his concentration was and how proud of himself he was to have it finished! Of course then he promptly stuck it full of pins, not completely unlike a voodoo doll.... He was pretty accurate with his lines. Maybe next time I'll stick him on sewing all those strips! :)

He did a great job! He could probably replace me on the project..... He might not sew stuff upside-down.
