    My daughter has NO interest in sewing, and I'm trying to get my 8 yr old granddaughter to sew. This is her first project using the 'big girl' sewing machine. She sewed every single seam and stuff it.

    She's off to a great start as a quilter. I see you are getting her interested at an early age. Good for her. She did a great job on her pillow!! I am sure you are proud of her. crafty_linda_b

    Good for her and good for you for taking the time to show her.
    My only daughter isn't interested in sewing either. When my granddaughters came over I had them each sew a tube pillowcase. They didn't want to do anything but step on the foot pedal to start and stop. But when it was done & they got to take it home, they were thrilled. I want them to find out that it can be fun to sew.

    She did a great job. Makes a grandmother feel so proud. Can't wait till my granddaughters are old enough to sew.

    same here. My daughter has no interest in quilting or sewing. I purchased my grand-daughter a sewing machine when she was 7. her first project was a jacket made from a sweatshirt. We made ours together. matchine sweatshirts. I made mine, she made hers. I told her she would only sew her finger once. She is now 20, having her second baby and sewing up a storm. I'm glad to have a part in her adventure. :-D
