After watching me sew for a couple of years now, my children are definitely interested in learning how to sew on a sewing machine as well. Santa was lucky enough to snatch up a Janome Blossom sewing machine before it was discontinued. It is a very nice sewing machine for beginners. It doesn't wobble on the table, has simple stitch functions and is just the right size.
After practicing some, Ella finished her first real project today! With much concentration she managed to sew straight lines :)
Pulled a ribbon through the tunnel, et voila, her first drawstring bag!
Pretty good for her first attempt huh?! I think it is wonderful to see how when you are very excited about your hobby children often pick up on your excitement and the joy spreads.
I am curious to see how far they will go and hope to be able to teach them to love creating for the rest of their lives :)
