Disclaimer: I barely know how to sew on a button! This could get interesting.
This Mary Engelbreit Mother Goose fabric book is the third one you can purchase from this particular series. It was a great first project for her as she could sew straight lines till her heart was content. She could also quickly reap the benefits of all her hard work. Grandma helped her with this one. Thank you, Grandma! I think we'll be looking for books 1 and 2 soon.
This Daisy Kingdom apron appealed to Magigail's other great love, cooking. She had this kit all of one day before she had to make it. The instructions were incredibly easy to follow even for her novice helper (me.) The tricky parts were all of the rounded edges...all...of...the...rounded...edges. She needed much guidance with this one! It may have been better suited for a project #9 or 10, but there was no way she was waiting that long. She is happy as a clam with the results and I learned all of the ins and outs of her new machine. Those things are amazing!
Project #3 was a dress for Sis' 3rd birthday. This was a no-kit-take-your-best-guess dress. We used a yard of practice material that I had purchased for Magigail, and a dress that Sis already owns as our "pattern." The end result looks pretty in the picture, and although it doesn't fit exactly as it should (shocking!)..., both Sis and Magigail are all smiles. Did I mention I don't really know what I'm doing? Oi vey.
A note about this post...It will change as she checks more projects off her list. I'll post an update on the sidebar when she has finished another one so you can see how we both improve.
Have you been sewing with your daughter?

I would love to see what you have been up to!
