Ethan (my four year old) doesn't like to be left out of anything. And he hears me talking about sewing and hand sewing quite often. So this morning he came to me with a handful of felt scraps and yarn. He told me he was ready to "hand sew" and that all he needed was a needle. I promptly found him a needle that would accommodate the yarn, yet still work with the felt and he was as content as could be.
His sister, Emily, has been knitting leg warmers for herself for ballet this Fall and he must have tuned in on that because when he finished he told me he had made "leg covers" for Ean.
