Our DS and family are staying with us until the rental house is ready on July 19th, and since we have a small house, they are living in my sewing room. Yesterday I decided to set up my featherweight on the patio since it was such a beautiful day. I no sooner began sewing than my GD Abby said she wanted to learn how to sew!
So, I found her some 3" square scraps and she picked out the ones she liked to make a doll quilt.
She is learning to line the fabric up against the 1/4" marker.
The speed of this machine is kind of hard to regulate, but she managed to figure out a way.
Once my Janome is more available, I can let her sew on that and turn the speed down to low, so it will be easier for her. We don't want any fingers getting sewn!
The top of her doll quilt is done!!
BTW, Abby is 7 years old. So far she is signed up in the summer reading program at the library and we have been to several parks with play grounds. I'm sure we will find more to report on. The house they rented is about 2 miles from our house. DS starts his job on Monday!
My project will get done, but maybe not in time for my brother's birthday, which is a special one for him. We might get rain today, so the table might get set up in the garage for sewing.
