Default Sewing w/grandkids

I had 3 of my grandkids for a morning and my DIL mentioned beforehand that she thought they might like to know how a sewing machine worked. So the night before I put together 3 pillowcases and just left the side and top seams free. After a little introduction, they made french seams, ironed and finished the cases. They were thrilled to try something new. My son does a lot of traveling for the Wounder Warrior Regiment of the Marine Corp and since I won"t be watching another grandchild this coming school year because she is going into Kindergarten, I have offered to stay with these 3 if my DIL can travel overnite with her husband. I promised another sewing project: envelope coverings for throw pillows for their bedroom.

What a lucky Grams you are. I also try to tell mine stories of my childhood during our together times. They see me in a different light - like you were a kid once? LOL

This is great! I hope to be able to share these types of things with my grandson as he grows up.
