Shereen at Waiting for Him hosts Sew Crafty Friday.
All this week my son has been a volunteer at the local Cub Scout day camp and my daughter and I spent a lot of time together. Monday we ran errands and did a bit of shopping. Tuesday I took her and her friend to the skating rink. My dad came along to see how she has progressed and this made her very happy. Wednesday, after her volunteer work at the library, she decided she wanted to make her doll some overalls. So she set to work choosing the fabric and cutting out the pattern. Yesterday, I sat beside her at the sewing machine, walking her through step by step. She did very well. The only thing I physically helped her with were making the straps, which had to be redone because she had sewed all the way around, not leaving any way to turn them inside out and then I helped her sew the snaps on. For some reason she kept tangling the thread and getting knots in it while trying to sew them on. She still needs some practice feeding the fabric through the machine evenly, but she is getting better with every project. She certainly sews better than I did at her age. I really didn’t enjoy sewing until I was an adult. I let her take the pictures of her project. It would please her so if you would swing by her blog, see her finished project and let her know what you think.
