Apples are cut, and ready to learn stitching. Since it was her first sewing project, we started with learning to thread the needle, to tie the knot, and to make a running stitch.
This book is very kid-friendly, and her confidence was right on, I was quite impressed with her first stitches! One of the best things, is the look on her face the whole time, truly enjoying herself!
Soon, it was time to pause, stuff it (which she loved doing as well,) and proudly share her first sewing creation!
I'm not affilated with or reviewing the book, Sewing School, we just had a great experience with it, and I wanted to share. I would recommend it to small children who want to learn to sew, as it is made for the very young, and Violet's smile shows how much fun it was for us. ♥
On another note, I won't deny that my daughter uses technology, and enjoys modern pleasures, too, but I just loved seeing her enjoy some good old-fashioned sewing! Kids are so creative, and it's great to provide opportunities for them to use their creative juices! Happy Mothers' Day everyone!!
