Teaching Kassy to Sew

I spent yesterday and today helping my granddaughter get familiar wiht her new sewing machine I got her for her birthday. It is a really easy machine so we were sewing soon after. She had already started a patchwork top on my machine so I helped her to finish that and then she made a small pillow to go with it. We ran out of time so I hand stitched the opening closed. She sewed and stuffed it herself. Yesterday after she got her she asked if we could go to the quilt shop. That is so thrilling to have a kid ask to go instead of running away screaming! LOL She picked out some fabric and I got it for her. She liked those little rolled fat eights.
Here is a picture of her in the dress I made for her to be flower girl at my daughter Samantha's wedding in June. Isn't she adorable. I really treasure the sewing and crafting time I have with my grand daughter as neither of my daughters was really interested in learning to sew.
