She chose the fabrics, thinking of her friends and their likes (and she nailed it).
She ironed the fabric (on the ironing board she bought for herself with her birthday money).
She counted popcorn seeds while I squared up the fabric with the rotary cutter (I thought it was too cute to not include).
And then, she sewed! Felicity is the fourth generation to sew on this machine. Though she has sewn with me before, helping me operate the machine while sitting on my lap, this was the first time she did it all by herself! She was very proud. And so was I!
And after lots of work, and a bit of help at the end with that dang binding, she had two lovey sleeping "pockets" to give to her two best friends on their birthdays.
I am hoping this is the beginning of a wonderful passion.
