Hi everyone, I wanted to do some sewing today (new bag)...
but look who 'discovered' the sewing machine!

my doughter, sewing

Our 13 year old doughter! She is a creative girl, but usually more a drawer..
Today she rumbled in my red and white fabric stash

red and white stash

until she found the right fabrics for a red and white pizza pillow!

A pillow for a hockey teammate.

Where did the time go when the kids were in bed by seven so mom could do some sewing??

Well maybe I have to take my moment tomorrow evening!

It is great to see our children take a creative interest in things, except when it infringes upon our creative time ;-)
No, it is really all good!

Levin (and Emily) said...

i have the same - emily has my old machine, but she prefers mine.....and there's no stopping her :) oh well, at least she is creative and not bored.
ps - incidentally, she goes to bed later than us these days.....hmmmm

Heleen, How very sweet! This is how I learned to sew, by raiding my mother's sewing drawers. Elizabeth

Dat is toch ontzettend leuk dat je dochter ook zo lekker kretief bezig is .
Mijn 2 dochters hebben dat helemaal niet en dat vind ik erg jammer .Maar mijn kleindochter van 4 jaar vind het erg leuk als ze hier is om lekker op mijn hobbyzolder te knutselen .Ben ik zo blij om .
Je dochter heeft mooie lapjes uitgezocht geef haar maar mijn complimenten
groetjes Paula
