I’m not a seamstress. I’ve sewn a few things, but none of them very well. I think my most ambitious project to date was a set of bloomers from Marie-Madeline Studio. There are several errors, but my daughter really likes them:
I enjoyed making it for her, but I haven’t done anything since. However, earlier this summer, Diva and I were looking through a class list for JoAnn’s Summer Camps and she decided she wanted to take a sewing class. Since I wasn’t sure I had much to teach her, I let her pick her favorite class. She selected a beginner’s quilting/applique class.
We selected her fabrics and a tote bag (on which the applique would be sewn), and I was not at all surprised when she selected pink fabrics, with a little green and sparkles.
Today was the day. We took my sewing machine and her fabrics to JoAnn’s. She met with the instructor and the one other student, and I left. I really wanted to stay with her, but they highly encouraged parents to let the girls learn on their own.
Near the end of the class, I returned and was able to snap a few photos of her work.
Diva really enjoyed herself! She said, on the way home, that she wanted to continue to sew. I was pleased, but now I need to learn right along with her. I am looking forward to helping her; and learning along the way.
Here’s her finished project:
I am proud of you Diva!
