My son has taken an interest in learning to sew. Last evening I took some time to give him the basics and he just sewed lines all over some scraps. It was a good way to figure out a few the basics and then tonight he made a few "sleeping bags" for his little sister's stuffies. My oldest daughter, in the background, is making a rag quilt. It takes time to teach kids but worth it. Alex will impress his future wife with his sewing skills. I know I was impressed when my husband sat down and fixed his coveralls with my sewing machine (even though I did cringe a little...coveralls don't belong near my sewing machine).
I am working on a quilt made with a jelly roll. It's a breeze so far!
I will share my progress soon.
