I am teaching 2 girls to sew; the one at the machine just turned 8 and her sister is 11,  
and once a week, for two hours, we work on different projects.
Yesterday, Gabriella wanted to make a sleeping bag for her 3 American Girl dolls.
Isabella at the ironing board.  She hasn't quite grasped the notion that sewing and ironing go hand-in-hand.  I'll keep working on it.
The 3 dolls in their new sleeping bag.
Gabriella putting herself in the sleeping bag along with the dolls.
 Isabella sewed a label onto the pillow she made.

This is sweet! I can remember my daughter making her Barbie clothes at a young age. It was so frustrating at times...spending all that time and then not being able to get their skinny legs through those pants..ahhhhh..the memories!

You have the patience of a saint just to be able to sew YOURSELF! I technically know how, but stink at it. I made a dress THREE times, each time with a different fabric, thinking that would help -- nope nope. Hung up the sewing machine, so to speak.

I never ever thought of kids taking sewing lessons. What a fun idea.

What a great idea....I remember taking sewing lessons from the woman across the street growing up......I treasure the time I had with her...she influenced me more than I knew at the time. I am sure you are doing the same for these gals!

Have a wonderful weekend!!
