    I just wanted to share some pics of my granddaughter's, Maria, age 4, new finished project. This was a bag that she made for her mommy's birthday. Maria personalized the bag using my micro pens, "Mommy ... I (heart) U ... Maria ... 2010"
    She is really getting into the 'sewing' thing now & enjoys looking at QB with me. Sitting in my chair beside me, looking & commenting on all the pretty quilts here that everyone posts. I hope you enjoy the pics & I am so 'proud' of her.

    Thanks Donna873
    She is saving her money for stash. LOL I don't have much stash, but we will do it somehow. I don't think I am ready to take her to a fabric store just yet!

    Thanks mom-6
    This is her 2nd project. To make sure she was interested in sewing, I first had her make a pincushion for me using felt. It was a pretty tough project, but she stuck to it. It is hard for me to sew felt...LOL mean granny huh!
    I posted thread called 'new quilter in the family'

    She is just darling. My DGD sews at a little table just like that. It's the perfect height for her. Tell her she did a great job.

    Thanks to you all for your compliments. I have read all of them to her while sitting here in my chair with me. She is so intense on sewing & listens very well at my instructions.
    On this project, she told me...'Nana, I remember what you told me on pin cushion. Foot off pedal, raise sewing foot leber (that is what she says instead of lever) pull fabric out & cut..BUT I need to watch my finners too.'
    She now wants to start a cosmetic bag for her mommy. Mommy asked her to make one...so I guess that will be in the making in a couple days.

    So adorable! I'm impressed that a 4 yr old didn't lose interest before it was done
