Teaching your Child to Sew

My 6 year old daughter has spent many evenings perched on my craft room counter watching me piece, quilt and create. What she didn't know, is that I was slowly brainwashing her! All along, I've been using sewing terms, teaching her about the machine's parts and apparently inspiring her own creativity. Last year I asked her multiple times if she wanted to learn, and I always got a resounding "no!", I think she was scared. So I was ecstatic when she came to me a few weeks ago and asked me to teach her to sew! I immediately went online and found an AMAZING book to help guide the process and I went through my stash of sewing tools (and my old machine) that I had set aside for her over the years. So here is our adventure...


I had her bookmark her first 3 projects in My First Sewing Machine book so we could build her skills. Here's how it went...

Project #1 (pg.60) - Felt Garland

Project #2 (pg.80) - Fabric Basket to hold her sewing notions.

Project #3 (pg.28) - Child sized Apron
