The girls and I spent a boring Saturday afternoon sewing!
Kristen has taken a liking to any kind of sewing and begs to do something all the time.
(she's JUST like me ;)
Samantha was gone and there wasn't a friend in the world to play with so I gave in.
She wanted to sew a blanket for her American Girl doll....like the one Santa gave her ;)
I've helped her sew before but yesterday she was ready to take it on, on her own.
She did a great job!!!!
And yes.....I (now we) sew on the floor!
(I think this came about because I rarely had a kitchen table that was near an outlet)
Samantha eventually came home and just HAD to join in the fun.
She too had something in mind to make.....though a little different.
She did a great job too....I'm so surprised that they've both just picked it up all of a sudden. Though I have helped them sew a number of times, i just didn't expect them to be able to sew this well ;)
Here's Kristen with her finished blanket, she made a pillow case too ;)
She did everything herself except the trim. I helped her cut it out and showed her how to sew the pieces together but she did all the sewing!!!
Samantha's little couch for her dolls...we covered a box with fabric and she made the pillows, with a little help ;)
