    About a month or so ago I posted about teaching my daughter how to sew. At that time my youngest son asked when I would teach him. Well, today was that day. He did pretty good but he had trouble controlling the speed and got frustrated. I finished his project for him and promised that next time we would use Gabby's machine which is slower. He groaned about using a purple machine but agreed that it would be much better. He did the front blocks and then I finished.

    I read somewhere that when teaching kids to sew you can put a small block in the foot pedal so they cannot sew too fast. Maybe an eraser or something.

    Tell Kain that we all think he did a wonderful job! And that there is nothing wrong with sewing on a purple machine :roll: :roll:

    Great job Kain, you'll learn how to slow down that machine. Everyone has trouble with keeping the speed down at first, your pillow looks like it was done by a pro :D

    How cool! It looks better than things I do :)

    It's awesome you took pics too. Memories in the making. I cherish those times around sewing and crafting with my Granny (now 96) and my mom, who passed away in '08.

    He'll get the hang of it. It is always nice to bring other guys into the craft.
    What helped my niece was the eraser trick on the foot pedal. It prevented her from going to fast cause she couldn't push it all the way down. :)

    That looks great, Kain! :thumbup: I think my nephews would like to have that pillow, but I say don't give it to any of them so they can learn to do what you did! Keep on sewing!!!

    Great first project- what's next?

    My sons had home ec in school (I call it home wreck) and made pillows too. They still have them, many years later.

    I have apillow I made- probably when I was about 12 or 13, just saw it the other day, forgot I had it.
