    My niece who is only 5 wanted to sew today so we made a ball!
    She is so proud of her ball and I only helped she did it.

    Here is her work. I think we have a future sewer on our hands :D

    (ohh yea the ball used pentagons and said to hand sew them but she didnt want to do that so we sewed them on the machine. Talk about a challenging first project Y seams lol)

    Fantastic!!!! It's always great to see a little one take an interest... afraid we are going to lose out to video games and cell phones! That sounds like a topic for a new discussion...

    She had so much fun. She has always liked sewing. She said that we should invite her brother next time but I told her that he doesn't like sewing he likes his DS(video game). What she said was so sweet.

    "Maybe if we make him something he would like it more" aawwwwww
    She is always so sweet to him

    What a great little sewer - and she has a very cute dress - did you make it. I hope she continues to find sewing fun...

    Nope I am a lefty too. Although I do alot of things with my right. The only thing I do exclusively with my left is write.
    So I could show her. She likes it that just her and I are lefties.
    She is even more of a lefty then I am.
