Jemima Sews

This afternoon Jemima came home from school with a hankering to do something crafty. She's had her eye on a yellow vintage sheet she spotted in my stash so today we pulled it out and she had her first ever try at sewing on a machine.



She was  a little nervous of the needle at first but quickly got the hang of it, and before long I was happy to leave her to it.


There's nothing like having complete creative control over something when you're a kid. Since she finally had her hands on mum's machine it was time to try out all of those fancy stitches!

 


And what better thing to start with than a little skirt for her nearest and dearest - "Baby". She needed just the smallest amount of help when it came to the elastic, otherwise this skirt is all Jemima.



Pretty nice effort for your first try. I can't wait to see what she comes up with when she realises she can make a skirt for herself!
