We start them young around here. The girls and I used to hand or machine sew every Wednesday evening. Then somehow we fell out of the habit.....my fault not theirs. They would sew morning, noon, and night every day if only I could be right there the entire time. So tonight immediately after we finished dinner I pulled out some machines and they started sewing. They were tickled!!
Above Elisabeth is using a "hand me down" machine that one of my sisters gave her a few years back. It doesn't work too well....so I think she'll probably graduate to my old reliable Kenmore from now on. I love my Kenmore!!!! And I'm sure she will too!!! She is working on a quilt.
Emily cut out a bag and quickly stitched it together. She used her machine which is a great machine. It is a Bernette 65 and aside from lacking a needle up/down button (because it is not computerized) it is a fantastic machine. She tells me it is her favorite machine of all we have....because it is hers. I can't argue with that.
And here is Emily's completed bag. I told you she was speedy!!! Now it's time to get them off to bed so that I can sew for a few minutes!!! I have a project to finish up so I can spill the info about the giveaway!!!
