The girls came to visit. And we did a little sewing.
Scarlett finished her bag.
Pay no attention to that messy house!
Scarlett was very pleased with the work she did. I had her do all the cutting (her hand over mine), all the ironing (I taught her to hold the iron by herself - press and set it back down) and all the sewing (her on my lap - guiding the fabric -me controlling the foot pedal).
This was a great first project. Quick enough that she didn't lose interest.
She's been using it for her books.
And Violet finished up her purse too.
I did the same with Violet - she did all the work just like Scarlett (with my assistance).
Violet has more patience for sewing and her purse took more time - which work out so nicely for her. She was begging me to let her sew Scarlett's purse up too.
I really can't wait for the next project.
