I’m sure you’re all on the edge of your seats to know what’s going on with my sewing student, my niece Katie. She received her sewing machine last weekend and all the extras I sent her. My sister said Katie screamed when she saw the sewing box and all the things I put inside it for her.
Apparently she immediately set up her machine and started practicing her stitches. Her favorite is the zig zag stitch. Katie took the following picture and asked her mom to send it to me.
And here’s a picture of Katie hard at work, practicing her stitches.
She tried to make her doll a dress, but it was too small, so she made it into a pillow instead. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of that.
I hope Katie keeps practicing. I sent my sister some simple sewing project links, in particular, this tutorial for a doll’s skirt from Liesl at Oliver and S. It’s perfect for Katie’s doll. So I sent her the rest of the floral corduroy fabric we used for her custom skirt so that she can make her doll, Abigail, a matching skirt.
In other sewing news, Jack has expressed an interest in learning to sew now too! Can’t wait to teach him.
