Miss Em wants to learn how to sew. Seeing as I just bought my first machine this year, and a rather fancy one too, I felt up to the challenge.
She wants a stuffed cat, not the easiest thing to start with as a first project but she is determined! We found a pattern that included dolls and a dog, but the cat alone takes such a small amount of fabric that it plus all the notions came to less than $20. My kind of project!
She cut out the pattern pieces herself with no assistance from me, and even remembered later how many duplicates we needed (the smaller pieces don’t have that written right on the piece. She helped me pin the pattern pieces to the fabric and has begun cutting it out. I’ll post more pictures as we progress.
