    My "mini me" learned to sew yesterday

    My neighbor's daughter, Sydney came over yesterday with her new little sewing machine. She learned what the parts of the machine are called, how to sew a straight line and not run over her fingers. She also learned how frustrating it is to have to stop and rethread your needle! LOL It was a great afternoon. She wants to make a pillow for her bed. I think we can manage that Maybe next week!

    Sydney and I love the same things - crafts, pink, girly lace and frills, shoes that sparkle or light up and now sewing. Hence, my "mini me". Her Nana just taught her to knit too! I'm amazed how fast she is able to learn and master all these skills. She just recently turned 7.

    Thanks for looking.

    Congratulations mini me and kookalbell! You are a natural at sewing. Keep up the good work.

    I taught my nine year old niece to crochet over the Christmas holiday. How fun!

    Great Job and keep her learning... My grandchildren love the stories that tells something about how this block came to be...Thanks for sharing

    I think most Grandparents (grandmothers) are so proud to hand down the arts the we have learned, maybe from our grandparents and the great grandmothers and etc. I know I'm. A couple of my granddaughters love to go down and check out what I am working on and if she can get her blocks (I gave her a drawer to keep her pieces in.) the grandboys just mostly ask what I am working on, and proceed in giving me their opinions. which I really enjoy. but they always ask who is the lucky one.

    Sydney is beautiful in sew many ways. My DGD and DGS each know how to sew with my machines and they love it. What is the brand of sewing machine Sydney received?

    The brand is "Totally Me". I think I saw this on Amazon. She got it from her grandma from Ohio. Today she was teaching her twin brother how to use the machine. He was most interested in pushing the foot pedal. She's practicing on her own today sewing the 2 and 1/2 inch blocks together in a continuous thread. Her mother (who can't sew on a button) told me Syd was "sewing some sort of banner" lol
