A Sewing Sunday Morning

The blue one woke up this morning and spied the sewing machine on the table and instantly announced he was going to do some sewing today.

Great – its before 9am, and I’m being ordered around already by a little person I thought!

I then asked the question of what he actually wanted to sew.  This produced a bit of a discussion about whether he just wanted to play with the sewing machine or was he actually going to make anything?

Pinterest was opened for easy kids sewing, and I really liked the look of a reindeer head   but we settled for a case for the crochet hooks he’s hoping to get for Christmas!

So of course, it being before 9am on a Sunday morning we can’t go and buy anything, so Mummy’s material stash was raided.  After another discussion on inches and cm – he set to work.  One thing to bear in mind, he’s only 8, and he did all this himself!

Then the bit he’d been waiting for – the sewing machine.  Zig zag 2 edges.

The original design used a bit of tape – but this was for crochet hooks, so crochet  was definitely needed.

    1. Thanks! Yep – he’s very technology orientated so will instantly gravitate to anything that has motors/ electricity!
