    About a month or so ago I posted about teaching my daughter how to sew. At that time my youngest son asked when I would teach him. Well, today was that day. He did pretty good but he had trouble controlling the speed and got frustrated. I finished his project for him and promised that next time we would use Gabby's machine which is slower. He groaned about using a purple machine but agreed that it would be much better. He did the front blocks and then I finished.

    I read somewhere that when teaching kids to sew you can put a small block in the foot pedal so they cannot sew too fast. Maybe an eraser or something.

    Tell Kain that we all think he did a wonderful job! And that there is nothing wrong with sewing on a purple machine :roll: :roll:

    Great job Kain, you'll learn how to slow down that machine. Everyone has trouble with keeping the speed down at first, your pillow looks like it was done by a pro :D
