Kaylee wanted a sewing machine for her birthday, so we got her the Barbie machine. We went to Hershey Park on her actual birthday (Friday, the 13th) so we had her first sewing lesson yesterday afternoon. I showed her the parts of the machine and she practiced sewing straight lines. She also made a block so that she could see how they piece together.
Before her lesson, we went to Joann's. I told her she could pick out a couple fat quarters to start her stash. I meant 2 or 3 but she talked me into 7 because she's now 7 yrs old. All you pre-washers would be proud, because as soon as we got home I showed her how to wash them!
Here are pics of her sewing and of her "stash".
