During the 4th term school holidays my granddaughter Jorja came for a sleepover. I had a few things planned for us to do but she asked if she could 'learn to sew patchwork please Nanna, and could I sew on one of your machines?'
After she saw the houses I have been sewing she asked if she sew one of those. Again I let her chose the material, I cut it, and then she sewed them on a foundation. Admitting that this was much 'harder' but she did finish it. This one is going home to be placed in her 'Barbie' box of tricks.
I think she did extremely well and now it looks like I will have to have a project to work on ready for next time.
When she got home, mummy and daddy had a very long demonstration on how 'you sew patchwork'. She remembered all the little details, like sewing straight; lining up the seams, etc.
