This past Friday our grandchildren spent the day with us, girl 9 y.o. and boy 7 y.o. I decided my grand-daughter should learn to sew on the machine; she was delighted. Needless to say I didn't think my grandson should also learn; he and Papa (my DH) went to see great-grandma. I started teaching her like my dear Mom taught me, my 4 sisters, and every girl who joined 4-H sewing. First, she sewed on lined paper with no thread; she soon graduated to a scrap of fabric and thread following the edge of the fabric. She caught on quickly and made 2 quilts for Webkins in a checkerboard 2 fabric pattern. Yesterday she called me, "Nana, I have an idea. How about every Friday I get off the schoolbus at your house and we can sew." Novel idea; great! Now I need project ideas for a 9 y.o. girl to sew; I tho't of pillowcases and flannel lounge pants. If anyone else has any ideas, please comment. Thanks and blessings.
