Summer has been a blast this year! We have had so much fun just doing normal stuff. And I can't believe that in a week D#2 starts school, D#1 moves back to college, Son starts college. Where did Summer go?
D#2 wanted to learn to sew this summer. We borrowed a doll clothes pattern from a neighbor and used some left over material to make the cutest clothes. I taught her how to read the pattern instructions, lay & pin the pattern on the fabric, cut it out and sew.
I believe in all it took us about 7 hours from start to finish. It is an easy pattern. This was her first time sewing and she did really well. She wasn't afraid of the machine, didn't get impatient reading the instructions and stitched real slow (which I stressed constantly, no speed sewing allowed). We made the orange top and grayish pants. That was outfit "B".
She loved sewing!
The completed outfit! We are going to make kid size pj bottoms next. That should be a lot easier. Nothing but straight stitching.
Molly all glammed up and standing on her own. D#2 said "Mom, she can stand by herself! Put a picture of that on your blog!" :) It's the little things.
