SEW much fun!

Look at the level of concentration on that face!

Little Miss O has been asking me to teach her how to use the machine for awhile now, but I wanted her to learn how to sew by hand first. I think that's super important to hand sew first since it's hard to see and comprehend what the machine is doing when you are placing different pieces together. One you do it by hand, it makes the machine much easier.

So, her she is, hard at work! She started with sewing straight lines. It takes some practice to get used to the timing- how hard to press the foot pedal, how fast to feed the fabric in, plus making sure you are lined up and sewing straight. There is a lot to do. 

Here it is!

All done and ready to go.

Look at that face. She is so proud of her apron. She wore it for an hour. And then asked me to bake an apple pie with her. Here we go!

We did some fun sewing in our Creativity Camps this summer at EmmaMade featuring Loops by Keri! In our tie-dye class, we dyed our fabric and then made bags from it! Only one of the children had ever sewn before and they were SO happy and proud of their work!

We did some fun sewing projects in our American Girl Creativity Camp too- the girls all made pillows and sleeping bags for their dolls.

Our next American Girl Creativity Camp is scheduled for Sunday October 5th from 3pm-5pm and we will be making all sorts of Back to School accessories for our dolls!

And after that class, from 5pm-6:30 pm We are starting up our Knitting Class for kids again! Perfect for kids ages 6+ for new knitters or knitters who want to learn more skills and work on projects!

Have a WONDERFUL Monday.

Craft on!
