It was bound to happen.
My big guy (9 years old) wanted to work the machine. MY machine.
He had his first lesson in sewing with this Pillowcase Tutorial. He was intent on choosing just the right fabrics. Dragons, black and orange. As for cutting and measuring, he could care less. "Let's get on to the sewing already!" is what was screaming in his head as my voice droned on about selvedges, precision, straightening and measurements. I had to make it somehow boring and mundane, right? I needed to introduce something boring in this project. He was about to use MY machine, and I really need to protect the one area in the house that no one really knows anything about.
He was so chuffed - so was I....
The pillowcase tutorial was super easy and quick! I have a feeling this will not be the last sewing adventure with my big guy.
