She is just to cute, there you have a quilter for sure or maybe a fashion designer.

A fashion Designer, that's cute, if it where up to my daughter everyone would wear polka dots, and I would make her a new outfit every single time we go past the polka dotted fabrics! :D

A pretend childs sewing machine sounds perfect. She currently has a pretend iron that I picked up for her (50 cents!) on an after Christmas sale at the LTS (local toy store), and she loves to help me iron. If any tears :cry: spring up I can easily fix them by asking her to sit and help me iron. :D Oh if it could always be that easy! :D

She is too cute at your machine love her smile--she'll be sewing up a storm before you know it.

What a sweetie! Break her in, mom! We need more quilters!

Dh thinks we should get her one of those children's sewing machine that everyone loves to hate, and take the needle out. That way it will make all the noises and be completely safe. Then later put the needle back in when she's ready to really sew.

I'd get her one of those Janomes if they weren't $100, anyone have a child's sewing machine they'd like to be rid of? I'd be more than willing to take a working vintage. ;)

What an absolute cutie pie! If they were all that cute, I might even have some of my own!

You might want to keep the machine unplugged just to be on the safe side Elizabeth...she just looks like she knows way to much about what she is doing!

I think she is ready to start Mom!

She is too cute.

Check out Ebay, they currently have several small machines listed for children. They are with the regular sewing machines.

I have been looking for one for my GD, she is four. :)

Good idea with the lights and sound with no needle. Maybe you can invent some kind of game that will help with speed control.

I started my first lessons on my old machine, but have moved my GDs to my new one because it has a governor on it and I can turn the speed down to a plop-plop that is easy to control things under. We also start by making lines on paper, no thread. I draw lines and they outline them with the needle. By the time we have material and thread there's a fair bit of control and lots less frustration.

Thanks, for the tips. I think we're going to go with the no needle first and then when she becomes impatient I'll begin working with her. Right now she seems to be enjoying her fiddling.
