Proud Mama!!!

I started my daughter in sewing lessons in March. She is 6 1/2 years old and for a few months prior to March I had been having her sit on my lap occasionally to do some simple sewing with me. Then I heard from a friend of mine that her daughter, who is about the same age as mine, was taking sewing lessons. I thought to myself, "I know how to sew, I can teach my daughter." But as I thought more about it, I just couldn't get past the idea of letting her sew at the sewing machine by herself, controlling the foot peddle herself. So, I decided to sign her up for sewing lessons and let another lady who was braver than me get her started on her own.

She has done so well! She just took to the sewing machine like she belonged there and has been very careful and attentive. In just a few weeks she's made her own pillow case and a skirt! She's learned how to use a serger, too! These pictures are her with her sewing teacher, who is AMAZING!

At her last lesson on Tuesday, she got her skirt almost finished. All she had left to do was make the casing and insert the elastic. So today we sat down to do that. I was so brave! I let her sit at the sewing machine by herself! I showed her how to make a casing and how to insert the elastic and she sewed it all together! She's so awesome!

Now of course I had to take some pictures of her modeling her very first skirt and laying on her very first pillow case! : )








And yes, pink is her favorite color. : )

WoW! My little one is 5 1/2 years old and I don't know that I'm brave enough to let her sew!! Such a great idea though! Maybe in a year. She looks so proud of herself! April@Little mama Hen

Thanks Janet! She is so proud of herself, and so confident in her sewing abilities! Thanks for all you've done to help her!

Yes April, it was a little scarey for me. That's why I took her to someone else who I knew wasn't afraid to teach a 6 1/2 year old! :) It's gone really well.
