This week we are trying some sewing.
Wish me luck!
I’m serious! I am not the best sewer in the world and so this has the potential to end very badly!!
- Get their creative juices primed by making a sewing box. The eldest was given one for her birthday a few years ago and the younger ones have decided to share a box. Phew! Only one mess to deal with then!
- Buy fabrics of their choice to create a super simple project with.
- Find a super simple project! This is proving to be harder than I thought but I’m not giving up yet.
- Go over the rudiments of sewing – tools involved, hand stitching techniques, sewing machine basics, etc.
- Let them loose!
- Drink heavily!
That’s all I have time for today as I have some serious mental preparation to do before attempting to teach these girls how to sew! Yikes!
