Birth of a Sewer


For Christmas this year Julia received a sewing kit . I was so excited for this and she was too when she opened it. The kit itself is okay. The scissors, measuring tape, and thimble will all need upgrading, but it included pre-cut felt shapes, embelishments, etc. that encouraged some fun beginning projects.

The other day she set out to complete one of her first projects: a stuffed felt elephant for her sister. I was so proud of her focus and perseverence. And the elephant turned out so cute! She's working on a second project, a dog, these days, in spurts.

I love having both encouraged and witnessed the birth of this mini-seamstress. Stay tuned for the birth of a second seamstress in the house, the sister who does not yet own a sewing kit but who has created her own out of a random bag.......
