I think they may be trying to takeover some of my jobs.
It seemed so innocent.
"How about you teach me how to hand sew the bindings?"
"But I like to do the bindings!"
"But I have a lot more time than you
so I could do it for you."
He has a point.
we started with a pot holder
cut, quilted and bound
(I helped just a bit by machine sewing the binding on the first side)
it would never do to have both sides the same.
Jeremiah began telling me how easy it was to sew.
He'd watched me at naptime.
"All you do is move the needle in and out."
Um - there's a heck of a lot more to it than that...
He whipped out a make-up bag
as a graduation gift for someone special
so she can use it when she goes on vacation.
I drew a line on both sides of the fabric to show where the needle should go. I never thought to do this when the others were learning to sew but it sure was helpful! We also made up a little ditty to help them remember to not go around the fabric. Up down up down do not go a-round up down up down keep it on the line (sad - I know..)
Not one to miss out on anything,
decided to make a little wallet because his stuff sack doesn't have any pockets.
