    Great job on her projects! What kind of sewing machine is that she is using? My granddaughter is only 3 but she is begging for a sewing machine already.

    Just google cardboard box oven you you will get options on how to make it We took a copy paper box lined it with two layers of heavy duty tin foil stapling in it in place It worked great!! As good as a home oven. Most of the directions tell you how much charcoal to use usually 9 to 12 pieces.

    I found her machine at Rite aid at Christmas time The first one I bought her was half off for $10.00 she took that one home this one I got for $20.00 she also has a Janome. the one you see is battery operated. Great for camping and it had a foot peddle.

    What fun.

    In all my years of capming I would never thought to use a cardboard box to bake. I would have been skeered it would catch fire.

    I have to admit I did it as a girl scout many years ago but didn't remember You only use 9 to 12 charcoal brickets as eac one is about 40 degrees It worked better than my oven at home!! Well our cake was a little crooked due to the leavel part of the ground but it even browned on the top~ I was impressed!!

    Maddy loves to sew as do her brothers, They made pillows this year, She lives 400 miles from me so it is hard. Plus when a I'm get there she has a 3 year old brother who will not leave us alone so we have to wait till naptime!!
