    Look what me and Elisa did, she came and stayed the weekend. She sewed her own purse, did everything lol. This was her first time on the sewing machine, and Grandma's got her started out the right way lol, foundations sewing all the way lol lol. Yup, drew the lines on a piece of fabric, and all she had to do was sew the fabrics onto the lines, she picked the fabrics, she used the sewing machine all by herself, used the foot pedal and everything, all i did was hold my hands over top of hers to protect her from the needle, she steered the fabric right on the lines...so we had fun...oh and her lil purse even has a lining inside lol :)

    I know that was fun for you and I'm sure Elisa was so very proud of herself. You're a good grandma. She'll probably never forget that weekend.

    Wonderful, Elisa! That little girl is not only cute as a button but talented, too. You picked a good project for her, too, grandma. Yes, they do have short attention spans......I just know that was just such a special time for you and your GD. She's never going to forget it! :lol:

    That is just beautiful! Did she pick the pattern and the fabrics and everything?

    She looks so pleased with it. How many little girls like that can say they made their own purse?

    She did an outstanding job Barb!! She is a very lucky little girl to have you for a grandma. There are way too many out there that will never have even one day with such a kind and beautiful grandma. You are the goddess :):)
