Sewing Lessons

The girls have shown a desire to learn to sew. My mom wasn't very domestic except for cleaning and caring for me, so I never learned myself. It is exciting to see my girls wanting to learn more domestic skills. It also gives me a good excuse to learn something new.

Since we cook and bake alot, we decided to start with aprons, which are always in short supply around our house. This will allow them to work with simple patterns and straight stitches.

So off we went to the Wal-i hate this store-Mart to get material, thread and a pattern. They couldn't wait, so last night they started and completed an apron.




Both Sarah and Hannah are fans of 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Sense and Sensibility' so their taste in fabric design runs on the toile side.
