A few scraps

When I was little my mom (or grandma or both) taught me
how to sew a bit and do a little crocheting.
I remember making TONS of Barbie blankets and pillows.
I still have a few...my girls use them now.
Love that my mom saved so much of my stuff.

A few weeks back Samantha wanted to sew something.
We pulled out my big bucket of stuff I can't seem to get rid of...
glad for that now.
She picked her fabrics and trim.
We made a blanket for Hello Kitty (or Butterflyee as recorded on her birth certificate)
Made a pillow too (though it's lost at the moment)
She helped to sew it. She pushed the pedal.
We had fun.
These are the kinds of memories that I have.
I want my kids to have them too.

Love family memories. Samantha looks like she had fun.

That is so precious and cute and special. I'm really impressed with the blanket you made together and how great is that that your girls play with stuff you made as a little girl. I love that you still have it too.
