This is my grandaughter Jenna who will be in the third grade this coming fall. She has wanted to learn to sew and so today was her first lesson. Jenna picked out her fabric last evening and so we set a sewing date for today. I had the pieces of fabric all cut when she arrived so we could concentrate on just sewing. As you can tell she is really enjoying it!
Along with sewing comes ironing and so here we are with our first ironing lesson. Not bad at all!
Jenna did one pillowcase and did such a good job she decided to do another so she would have one for each of her pillows. This one she did much better and was really comfortable with the machine. Here she is sewing down her ric rac. What concentration!
Another happy face! Maybe I was bothering her trying to get alot of picture. LOL I have hoped and prayed that one of my grandaughters would want to learn to sew and here is my first!
The final results! We had 2 1/2 hours together and she got 2 pillowcases done. She is so proud and so am I! She is already thinking of other projects she would like to make but for the next few weeks she will be working with a pig to show at the fair. I had such a wonderful day and will look forward to more days like today! :D
